Checked using With a typo on the death index, could Slough, Preistman and Warburton be from one incident. Jack W Bolton is registered in 1942 on CWGC, your a year out on that one Henk.

440412 - Unaccounted Airwoman & Airmen - 12-4-1944Hello all, Now I have no axe(s) to grind, but is the completed Warburton story more-or-less as described in Wiki, etc? The reason I bring this up is that I retired from RAF Benson in 1998, and there was a lady who lived near the airfield (Anne Williams, I think - Forum c/s COTTESBROOKE(?)) who was campaigning for some sort of memorial to Warburton to be organised at/near RAF Mount Farm. I don’t know what happened to that campaign. Where may the full story (if there ever is such a thing?!!) be found? TIA Peter Davies ....Read More.Resmoroh on 18th January 2014 08:08:37
