    Concerning Jones (Tiger Moth 1253) I think my web page is in error,and needs updating. The Record Card of 1253 does not list the unit at the time of the crash.

    Concerning Prihoda, here is what I have for Harvard 2742:

    Category A damage on 12 December 1943 while with No. 34 Service Flying Training School at Medicine Hat, Alberta. Crashed at 09:30 local time, north of Seven Persons, Alberta, while performing authorized aerobatics. F/Sgt Bohuslav Příhoda, a Czechoslovakian citizen in the RAF, killed. He had been a mechanic in No. 310 Squadron RAF, and had remustered as a pilot.

    Hi Alex,

    just one correction for:

    PRIHODA, Bohnstav - F/S - 787087 - RAFVR - Medicine Hat (Hillside), Alberta, Canada. [ Harvard II - 2742 - 34 SFTS ].

    - his first name was Bohuslav (as mentioned by Bill)

    All other details - provided by Bill - are correct
