    Hi Henk
    Baldwin,21, is registered at Chippenham,Wiltshire and there is a Leonard F Heath24, registered at Epping. Haven't found Williams.
    Warners Blenheim has no deaths for L9022, only injury to P/O J Rowntree.
    Regards

    Hello

    Sgt (Pilot) Raymond WILLIAMS - 748353 - Service Nº. on CWGC is listed as 748354, and the Graves Registration Form lists his unit as 1 S.S.

    The National Probate Calendar records that he died at Martindale, Lincolnshire, so that would put him in Wallace K6037.

    Regards

    Simon
