    Basham in India is listed as DOAS
    Franklin, Gourley, Marshall, C H Scales are all listed as DOAS
    http://skynet.ie/~dan/war/flightsa/1...nscription.htm

    I cannot find Claridge in Flight magazine, I imagine given his age he may have died at home after a medical discharge, he may not have been on the books at the time.
    Also, cannot find Hodgkins.

    John Alexander Gourley died aged 41 in Tain district, Ross and Cromarthy, Scotland. Died in Sick Qtrs Tain. Died of a fractured Skull received a day earlier. The is a note suggesting a correction to the register entry in 1946.


    Greenop's name appears in a 1945 casualty listing a previously missing now presumed killed on active duty.

    I can see that Greenop and Judge are listed on the same page of Aeroplane magazine in 1944, and found them both on Cas list 422, Missing believed KOAs and Judge is KOAS.

    HODGKINS listed on probate as died at 77 Dudley Road, Birmingham. This appears to be a Hospital.

    BLAKEMAN, Ernest Walter - Sgt(A/G) - Wellington III - BK157 - 12 OTU
    On a gunnery training flight 31 May 1944 while doing evasive maneuvers the port wing came away, and the plane crashed into a field in Tadmarton, Oxon, killing all on board. Sgt Blakeman and the pilot are buried in Banbury, Oxon.

    Hi Jon

    Should this be Petworth Park, Sussex, which is in the Midhurst area where his death is registered?

    Very possibly Malcolm . And the only thing that does make sense Petx park was the location given contemporarily
