Also looking for info on two airmen commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial: Sgt Ronald C. BRINKLEY - 1330917, and Sgt Antony E. WELLS - 1334546. It is possible that both were on a Wellington missing on a transit flight from Harwell to the Middle East via Gibraltar (not listed in BLME/Med - Temple/Gunby). Regards and thanks for your help.
