    R S Toone, S D L Peterson, C W Golding, H Francis, H W Skipper all listed DOAS
    http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/flight...nscription.htm

    For Canada, 31 EFTS also lost Adam Jansen, a Dutch pupil?, same incident as C H Lord?

    F/Sgt J Fox (obs) aged 22 seems to be registered as above in Cirenchester. vol 6a 711 and he seems to have a Killed on Active Service listing
    Same page as J F Scholes age 32
    also J J Marcus J/9287 RCAF
    Previous http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...905-28-12-1943
    Scholes and Marcus on the HX861

    Might there be a connection with Fox? hardly three in a Mossie. Something else must have pranged.

    Hi Dennis, I am new onto the site. A Jansen who died with Lord. Adam Jansen is my Uncle. He has a Brother and Sister still alive. His Sister is my Mother and she has asked if I could find out the circumstances of the crash and any details regarding her Brother Adam. We have located Adams burial site and am in the process of obtaining his war records from MOD. The MOD advised that they can supply is service record but it will not include any details of what happened to him. In 1943 all that Adam's parents received was a photo and a letter. The photo survives but the letter can not be located. Any information would be appreciated or advise on where to find these details. Thanks, John

    Failing that the Canadian archives ought to have details of the accident.

    Dakota should be able to locate the RCAF Crash Card for Cornell 15025. That should provide some details.
