410110 - Unaccounted airman - 10-1-1941Henk, Finn It is interesting to see the name of F/O John Harris associated with HMS Illustrious as his name does not feature on the list on the naval-history website for RAF fatalities as a result of the bombing of HMS Illustrious. The fifteen names which are given are : Corporal William J T BEHAN 534795 see note 1 Corporal Charles ELLERINGTON 525580 see note 1 Leading Aircraftsman Clifford J Z GODDARD 541273, see note 2 Leading Aircraftsman Frederick A HARLEY 565253 see note 1, see note 3 Corporal Edwin HOUGH 542192 see note 1, see note 4 Sergeant Cyril D S HYSLOP 526270 see note 1, see note 2 Corporal Ronald E JARVIS 565054 see note 1 Sergeant Arthur C LEACH 560852, see note 1, see note 2 Leading Aircraftsman James H LONGMORE 535291, see note 1, see note 3 Leading Aircraftsman Norman L MORRIS 620460, see note 1 Corporal Fred ROBINSON 525218, see note, see note 2 Flight Sergeant Harold TYSON 550134, see note, see note 2 Flight Sergeant Vincent R VIGNAUX 560946 see note 2 Corporal John F WILBY 522160, see note 1 Corporal John B WILLAN 536534 see note 1 Notes Checking these fifteen names against the CWGC site: 1 Thirteen have an annotation “Serving on HMS Illustrious” 2 Six shown as with 806 Sqn. 3 Two shown as with 815 Sqn. 4 One shown as with 802 Sqn. On the CWGC site the details for F/O Harris there is no annotation re HMS Illustrious. I can offer no explanation as to why the name of F/O John Harris is not included on the naval history site, perhaps other forum members more familiar with the casualty reporting procedures could comment. Although assigned to Illustrious perhaps he was not on the carrier at the critical time but then how/where was he killed? Dave Molyneux ....Read More.dave bristol on 27th July 2008 02:51:36
