|410515 - Unaccounted airmen - 15-5-1941||Hi Henk
Dennis beat me to it again!!
McGuffie, registered at Barnstaple could be right for N9817 and it is where Rose,22 is registered
CWGC has a George Bell on the right date age 34, the nearest I could find was age 29 and registered at Wetherby, NE of Leeds in W Yorkshire.Buried in Scotland
Vetch at Sutton Coldfield could have been on T5846, Kingsbury is not far away.
Like Dennis, I couldn't find Blundell but CWGC shows him as buried near his parents home and he could have died in Scotland

|Blackburn Dart N9811 'Coded' 61||Hello,
Wingspan (UK). January, 1996. (No.131) p.23.
"Down in the drink"
Photo caption reads:
The pilot waits patiently for rescue after his Blackburn Dart (N9811) was forced-landed on the water, 26 June, 1929. (Notes: A/C has a shadow-shaded white? # "61" , on a light-coloured fuselage band).
One of the other shots in the set - "73"
This might help:
Aeroplane Monthly. December, 1976. pp.652-3.
Caption to photo number 3, reads:
The caption 'Picking up Boozy's ship", tells us that the unfortunate pilot of the Blackburn Dart Torpedo-Bomber N9817 was none other than Lt Byas*, later to become CO of 803 Squadron aboard the "Hermes" and affectionately known as, 'Boozy' Byas. N9817 is recorded as having sunk in the Mediterranean in 1931 - presumably the incident depicted. (Notes - a/c has a light-coloured number "73" on the fuselage).
* Later Cdr Cyril William BYAS RN (S/L, RAF) - [url]http://uboat.net/allies/commanders/422.html[/url]

|Blackburn Dart N9811 'Coded' 61||Byas was attached to RAF until August 14 1931, so can only have been involved in N9817 incident,
He looks to have re-joined Navy earlier
FLIGHT, MAY 22, 1931
The following appointments were made by the Admiralty :—
Lieutenants (F.IO., R.A.F.): C. W. Byas, R. A. Kilroy, H. D. Barlow,
and C. A. Kingsley-Rowe, to Victory, for 402 Flight.
He ditched Swift (Pobjoy K) G-ABNH off the Coast of South Africa in late Oct 1931 when he attempted to fly it "home".
