|410914 - Unaccounted airmen - 14-9-1941||P/O William V.A. EVANS - DOAS Age 25, Crewe District
Cpl John A. McCRAE - DOAS There is a 31 year old in Crewe District, age 36 on CWGC
Sgt John B. PATON - KOAS (Named as J B Payton in Flight Archives); there is a 21 yr old registered in the Windsor district.
LAC Jeffrey WILLIAMS - DOAS, Age 19 Crewe District.
AC2 Peter H. WILLIAMS - DOAS. Age 19 Newton A District
So Evans, McCrae and J Williams in Crewe district. There are no civilians listed for this date in Crewe Borough so i woudl doubt it was a raid? Car accident maybe.
Winkfield is in the Windsor district so perhaps Paton was on T6191 Tiger Moth? ....Read More.||dennis_burke on 16th December 2008 06:28:51|
|410914 - Unaccounted airmen - 14-9-1941||F1180 for Tiger Moth T6191 lists Payton (sic) as sole fatality.
This may be the source for the Flight name error for Paton.
