    All were registered in England, as follows:

    Quinn - Grantham
    Powell - Carlisle
    Harris - Northumberland North First
    Hope - Chipping Norton
    Page - Chipping Norton
    Walmsley - Chipping Norton

    Powell would fit with Beaufighter T5130
    Harris with Hurricane KX565
    Hope, Page and Walmsley with the Oxfords.
