    ALEX.
    Good start.

    Important that the thread titles follow Henks format, start ALL these thread TITLES with the date in THIS format

    430924 yymmdd
    That will allow them be sorted by date. Very important for indexing.

    See the thread titles on the index
    http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/henksthreads.html

    Scroll down to see format I refer to.

    Freise Greene, Meggitt and Barker are all registered on page of the Cirenchester district register.

    Their names appear under a killed on active service listing. KOAS

    Might be related to 3 (P) AFU maybe.

    Sedgewick is registered in Wenlock district. User Thorne83 should have details of him from his Shropshire research.
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?3670-Shropshire-s-casualties-and-aircraft-crashes/page2
    He is actually a Died on Active Service listing so probably no connection to an aircraft crash. Ground accident or illness.
    The wills calenders give his place of death as Albrighton, Shropshire. Normally war related deaths do not have place of death, it usually states 'on war service'.

    Rose Reece died in Exeter district. Died on Active service, Cas. Com 321

    Cannot see for now a candidate for J D H Williams in England & Wales. There is a Jessie D Williams age 20 in Cuckfield district, but this is only a guess.
    Died on Active service, Cas. Com 320

    Well done gents. I've amended the thread title as per the request from Dennis.

    F1180 for Oxford LW752 confirms Friese Green as pilot in command and lists 3 fatalities in total so looks like Meggitt and Barker now accounted.

    Regards
    Ross

    W/O(pilot) Vincent Pendleton FRIESE-GREENE - 963754
    F/Lt. Tom Roy MEGGITT - 45359
    Sgt. Allison John SEDGWICK - 1011330

    AC(2c) Rose Reece - 472863
    LACW. J.D.H. Williams - 426791

    Regards

    Simon

    Leggitt was killed whilst flying in Albemarle I, P1382 of No 296 Sqn, which ditched off Pantelleria following an engine failure whilst delivering mail.

    In his book on Shropshire Tom lists Sedgwick as being at Cosford, which fits with a death at the RAF Hospital
