    Default Unaccounted airmen - 21-8-1940

    Horsham St.Faith, Elton, Watton, Catfoss, Eastleigh, West Malling, Pulham, Exeter and Bircham Newton, where there were several casualties, were attacked by the Luftwaffe.
    Looking for the places of death registration of following airmen:

    A - Not in Flight archives:
    LAC Leslie W.F. TAYLOR - 538918

    B - Died of wounds or injuries received on active service:
    Cpl John ANDERSON - 979309
    AC2 James KENNEDY - 983513

    C - Killed on active service:
    AC2 Percy SUTTON - 942366

    D - Also looking for:
    P/O (Pilot) John F.S. PRICE - 41060 - 110 Sqn (Blenheims, Wattisham, Suffolk), buried Coity (St.Mary) Churchyard, Glamorganshire (UK8951). He was killed in action (while flying in operations against the enemy). Can't find a Blenheim-loss for this day.

    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.

    No answer required to P/O PRICE - 41060. He was killed on Blenheim R3773.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Default P/O Price - 41060

    CWGC has date of death "21th" August 1940 - Chorley in his Vol.1 page 104 lists him on "30th/31th" August 1940 (Blenheim R3773). What means that we still have a problem. Death registration could bring an answer ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hello

    LAC Leslie W.F. TAYLOR - 538918 - the Graves Registration Report records him as being with 'No. 3 G.A.S.' - any ideas what that might be anyone? Perhaps 3 A.G.S...?

    Regards

    Simon
