    Hi Bill,
    Thanks for the reply.
    Sorry I am a bit new to the terminology. Is Cornell 15025 the number assigned to this crash, the one with
    Jansen and Lord?
    Thanks, John

    Hello

    BAHAMAS
    TOONE, Reginald Seymour - F/O - 125437 - the Leamington Spa Courier of January 7th 1944 reported that he died in the R.A.F. Hospital, Nassau, after an operation.

    UK
    FOX, James F/S (Obs) - 1026432 and
    SCHOLES, John Francis - F/L (Pilot) - 65590

    The Lancaster Guardian of December 31st 1943 reported the following:

    AIRMAN KILLED IN ACCIDENT
    Notification has been received by Mrs. J. Fox, of 9 Mill Street, Lancaster, that her husband, Flt-Sgt. James Fox, has been killed ina flying accident. he was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. William Fox, of 10, Richmond Avenue, Lancaster. Flt-Sgt. Fox had finished one tour of operational flights with Bomber Command and was on a conversion course for Fighter Command when he met with the tragic accident.


    Amongst the service records of J J Marcus J/9287 RCAF, the Court of Inquiry into Mosquito HX861 lists the crew as Capt. M. E. ROGERS and F/O J. J. MARCUS. It also includes a statement from Sqn. Leader Antony George Fisher of 60 O.T.U., which includes the statement "another of our aircraft had crashed during the afternoon and I went to the scene of the crash." So, were SCHOLES and FOX aboard HJ826 - both are registered at Cirencester?

    Regards

    Simon
