    Hi Henk
    Thanks to Paul.There is a Burroughs, 40, identified only as "male" registered at Hendon, but nothing to connect him to any Armed Service. There are no first names or Initials. I suppose it is possible that there were few recognisable remains but that he was among those known to have been lost from a roll-call of survivors.
    Regards
    Dick

    Thanks Dick; will amend my files accordingly. All those registered at Hendon, Middlesex may have been air raid casualties.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    "Hendon was attacked at 2045 hours and again at 2250 hours, resulting in the Station at Collingdale being hit."

    I think this puts the Hendon casualties in context though she remembers it as a Sunday - 25th Sept was a Wednesday

    Paul,
    There was a reaction re Husher: his death was registered at Thorne, W.Yorkshire (in the Doncaster area).
