    Default (Pte) C.E WOODHOUSE Died 20.5.42 15 Sqn ?

    Hi,

    Looking for some help with a query.
    Bomber Command Losses 1942 W.R Chorley has

    19/5/42 15 Sqn Stirling W7523 lost on Air Test near Graveley 7 killed 2 injured, one crew member/passenger
    Pte C.E Woodhouse died of wounds 20-5-42

    Now I can't find him on the Cwgc, I did come across somebody on the American Battle Monuments Commission website under Royal Air Force.

    Electrician Charles E WOODHOUSE RAF - US Army Air Force from New York. Died 20-5-42 buried Cambridge American Cemetery

    Checking the England Death Registry for that period I find only Charles E WOODHOUSE Age 78 ! Died Biggleswade.

    Any help much appreciated

    Hi Mark

    I think this link may help you

    http://genforum.genealogy.com/woodhouse/messages/113.html

    According to Chorleys the aircraft was on an operational air test and as Charles was an American electrician presumably some joint testing was going on?

    Being American he wouldn't be listed on the CWGC
