    Hi Henk,
    Nothing in the 607 Squadron ORB for any of these...no air crash either.

    Best Wishes.
    Robert.

    Henk, another which doesn't clear up your query but the pilot of Oxford R8828 RAFC was one LAC James Quinn RAF 968367. I have a note that it struck a tree on high ground whilst attempting a force landing in bad weather, flying solo. Why he was so far from Cranwell is not known.

    His career after this incident is not known.

    regards Rich Allenby

    Hello

    F/Sgt Ernest F. BISHOP - 510764 - the Grave Registration Report records him as being with 20 E.F.T.S.

    ACW1 Carol W. LAWRY - 886111 - the Eastbourne Herlad of October 12th 1940 rported the following:

    VICTIM OF BOMBING ATTACK
    Seriously injured in one of the Nazi bombing raids on Eastbourne on Tuesday, Miss Carol Winifred Lowry, aged 31 years, died in hospital the folowing morning. It was during the afternoon in the first of three attacks on the town that Miss Lowry received her fatal injuries.
    Another young woman, Miss Pamela Beardmore, aged 17 years, was also injured.
    The attack, which was upon a shopping area, was delivered with a number of high explosive bombs and an oil incendiary, and there was considerable damage to property.

    Regards

    Simon
