    Hi Henk
    Edgar,20,is registered in W Cheshire which is the right office for Broxton, Hind-Smith,27, is registered at Devizes,Wiltshire. The other 2 don't come up so may be in Scotland
    Regards

    Edmunds is registered at Worksop, Notts which is near the Netherthorpe Airfield, Yorks. Possibly in hospital there after being involved in the crash of Lysander P1692 on the 6th

    Hind Smith was killed in Harvard N7174 at Casterley Camp, Netheravon.

    regards

    Edgar was killed in X4159 when the Spitfire crashed due to oxygen failure

    "Spitfire I - K9967 - 7 OTU - crashed, location not known, "


    It crash-landed at Hawarden (or Hawkinge) - However I also have the date as both 14-9-40 and 13-9-40 from difference sources

    As 7 OTU was at Hawarden I would suggest this is the correct location
