    Hi

    Armour - He was probably serving at RAF Honeybourne and died from injuries sustained in the early hours of Christmas Day when he was thrown from a jeep carrying eight people at Croome d'Abitot whilst returning from a dance.

    Hello

    MERCER, Israel Nathan ("Nat") - AC2c - 1454098 - I think his death was registered at Pancras, London, March 1944 aged 33 as Nathan I. Mercer. His card in Air 78 has Israel Nathan Mercer.

    BATES, Nigel Ivor - Sgt (Pilot) - 1336476 - there are three death notices in the Roll of Honour section of the Walsall Observer of January 22nd 1944, all of which record that he was "accidentally killed."

    Regards

    Simon
