From the death reg. Gaignot appears to be the only fatality in the Lysander.
On the same page is recorded the death of Ronald CALLABY on 18/11/41, also at Dalcross airfield and may be associated with the loss of Oxford P1847,

|411118 - Unaccounted airmen - 18-11-1941||Hi Henk
Sharp Clarke and Hobby are all listed on GRO as being with 4 AOS so I've got them with Botha L6195.
Callaby is registered in Petty and Carter is buried there so I suspect then were both in P1847.
I've pencilled Stephens into Master N9010

|411118 - Unaccounted airmen - 18-11-1941||Thanks friends for this excellent 'harvest'. With CARTER probably on Oxford P1847 it took seven from the list. But I (we ?) still have a long way to go !

Not sure that's right, as Henk's old thread has them both in Oxford P1847 of 2 A.G.S.:
Scotland's People website confirms Callaby was killed at Petty, Inverness.
