    For the record Fielden does show up DOAS in a 1943 Flight magazine.

    Robert Singer Gray or Grey doesn't seem to show up in Scotland, fairly distinct middle name there.
    There is a "Robert Grey" aged 40 listed in West Cheshire, for the third registration quarter of the year, might be our man. CWGC has R S Gray aged 39.

    Hello

    AC2 Stanley E.S. FIELDEN - 1624171 - The Coventry Evening Telegraph of March 8th 1943 reported the following:

    Royal Air Force Cadet Stanley E. S. Fielden, who fell 50 feet over a cliff at Paignton, Devon, yesterday, died of his injuries in Torbay Hospital this morning.

    A report in the Western Morning News of March 10th on the inquest reported that the Coroner recorded a verdict of "Death by misadventure."

    LAC Thomas W. FOX - 1044950 - the Mid Sussex Times of August 18th 1943 reported the following:

    KILLED AVOIDING A PRAM
    "He tried to avoid injury to another, and doing so resulted in his death," observed Dr. E. E. Hoare (Coroner foe East Sussex) at an inquest at Haywards Heath Police Court last Wednesday on L.A.C. Thomas Fox, R.A.F., of Holly Walk, Northstead, Scarborough. Fox was cycling in single file with other R.A.F. men down Gates Green Lane, West Wickham, on July 29, when he braked and, in the words of a witness, "pulled up dead" to avoid a woman and a pram. He was thrown off the cycle, his head hitting the road. When picked up he was unconscious. He was brought to Hurstwood Park Hospital, Haywards Heath, where he died of a fracture of the base of the skull. The Coroner recorded a verdict of "Accidental death."


    F/Sgt John SMYTH - 350937 - the Chelmsford Chronicle of August 13th 1943 reported the following:

    FLIGHT SERGEANT'S FATAL ACCIDENT
    The funeral took place on Saturday of Flight Sergeant John Smyth, of Cloverley Road, Marden Ash, who died as as the result of a cycling accident in Lincolnshire.

    Regards
