    Young Hart is listed as DOAS on the 9th March 1944 casualty lists in FLight magazine. Cas Comm 353

    CWGC have him as Younge-Hart.

    R McFarlane, is on Casualty Communique. 355 in the same magazine, DOAS also as one would expect.

    W G V Simpson is also listed DOAS


    Note that Edward Scott's Grave Registration report lists his unit as 307 Ferry Training Unit.
    The 16th March 1944 Flight magazine and Aeroplane casualty lists confirm E Scott as having died of injuries received on active service.,

    There is a Scottish death registration the matches the age:
    DOUGLAS, DAVID Age:36 year: 1944 Ref:643/ 1 Registration District : East Kilbride

    I rememebred I transcribed all the 1944 DOAS entries and they are here: No sign of D Douglas: http://ww2irishaviation.com/DOASandWAAF1944.htm

    Greville is listed as being with 63 OTU on his grave registration sheet on CWGC. And listed as Killed on Active Service

    Hi

    I wonder if Scott may have died from injuries, sustained on 29 Dec 1943 whilst flying in Boston III, W8370 of No 1 OADU, which flew into the ground near St Agnes shortly after taking off from Portreath.

    Hello

    DOUGLAS, David - AC1 - 1374193 - the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that David Douglas, Motor Driver (Aircraftman, R.A.F.) died at 11.40 a.m. at Hairmyres Hospital, East Kilbride due to Pulmonary TB, for which he had undergone two operations in October and December 1943.

    Regards

    Harold Sunderland is listed as 307 FTU on CWGC registration sheet, Lupton is on a cremation memorial so there is no such page scanned! So, i think that's a fair assumption to make for Scott.
