    Lawson and Martindale are likely to have been in Oxford V3147 which crashed near Kemble on this day.

    There is the death of a Charles Evans registered in Belfast district, Northern Ireland on 19 July 1944. The new GRONI search engine may or may not be hiding amiddle name but I can get that much from a free search. Death seems to be a DOAS casualty.

    I cannot see Gilroy or Poole in Flight magazine or elsewhere.

    Poole is listed in national Probate Calender as

    From: 5 hareworth Rd isleworth
    Died at: 30 Twickenham Road, isleworth

    from CWGC, HESTON AND ISLEWORTH, MUNICIPAL BOROUGH does not have any civilians killed that date, one child died of injuries received earlier.
    The names adjacent to his on the register don't appear to be casualties apart of the child mentioned above.

    A quick update for the following two:

    LAWSON, John - AC2c (Flt/Engr) - 1590121
    MARTINDALE, William Leonard - Sgt(Pilot) - 1395904

    The R.C.A.F. service records of J/41958 P/O Gordon Howard ATKINSON, R.C.A.F. record that he, along with the two R.A.F. men above, were killed in Oxford I V3147 of 15 (P) A.F.U., Kemble. The Oxford crashed on a cross country training flight, some 1/2 mile east of Kemble.

    Martindale was the trainee pilot, Atkinson the Navigator, and Lawson an U/T Flight Engineer. The Oxford stalled while turning to port at around 800 feet, and dived into the ground.

    Regards
