    Henk,

    Regarding Armstrong he is listed in the RAF Overseas War Deaths 1939-1947. His unit being 11 OTU ! Flight 7-11-1940 list him as Died on Active Service !

    I'm wondering if he died during the Blitz. I was also wonder if his body was missing, although he was later buried in Middlesborough Cemetery ! The reason for him being on the Overseas list !

    Hello

    AC2 Alfred ARMSTRONG - 997488 - the Evening Despatch of October 9th 1940 reported the following:

    A verdict of death by drowning was recorded today at an adjourned Westminster inquest on Alfred Amrstrong, aged 27, R.A.F. mechanic, whose body had been recovered from the Thames near the Houses of Parliament. He had been absent without leave for five days.
    A Thames policeman said that Amrstrong's cap and respirator had not been found. His home was at Miiddlesbrough.
