|410514 - Unaccounted airmen - 14-5-1941||Hi Henk, i am not at my files at the moment, but off the top of my head Morris was in N7779 which was serving with 5 FTS (not 14 FTS) and crashed at Goldstone Lane near Cheswardine in Shropshire.
Layton was on N7927 and it crashed in the Cheswardine area aswell.
I'll post more details later!

|410514 - Unaccounted airmen - 14-5-1941||Hi Henk,
having checked my files Morris was solo pilot of N7779 and it crashed at Goldstone Common, Shropshire. He crashed during "deliberate low flying over cousins farm".
Layton was solo pilot of N7927 and stalled at low altitude during practice force landings. The aircraft came down at Ellerton Hall, Hinstock, Shropshire.
The interesting thing regarding Johnson is that he is listed on a nominal roll and appears on a course photo. Both accident cards for the above accidents show Morris and Layton as Solo occupants though, so i don't know how Johnson fits into the picture??!

|15th May 1941 Mystery||In a post on this site, Henk has asked about some unaccounted Airman on 15th May 1941 there is a reply from Alan Clarke that says "
"5 FTS ORB
May 14th 1941, “758256 Sgt u/t Pilot G. Morris, 993683 LAC J.B. Nicholson and 937443
LAC D. Layton were fatally injured in a flying accident"
We now know, thanks to Tom Thorne there was at least 2 separate accidents Morris in N7779 and Layton in N7927 (not one flying accident) - But 993683 LAC J.B. Nicholson is a mystery. There is no one by that name on the CWGC for the date or the day before or after. And Tom Thorne adds
"The interesting thing regarding Johnson is that he is listed on a nominal roll and appears on a course photo. "
Nicholson is now Johnson.. This may be typo - But I was wondering if there is a J B Nicholson or Johnson listed for Shropshire in the death register for Q2 1941?
I feel that there is too much detail on 993683 LAC J.B. Nicholson (the fact we have a service number) or Johnson for this to be a be a mistake in the Orb
