    Default Unnaccounted Airmen

    Dear henk,
    I see you are looking for the men from Thorney Island base that crashed in the Havant area on December 24m 1940.
    The area which was once fields is now under the housing estate called Leigh Park and that area was called Prospect Farm.
    Two of the men killed were Sergeant Frank Neville Meddings aged 21 and Pilot officer Michael Collier Buckbarrow aged 23.
    The site is at the junction of Forestside Road and Whitsbury Avenue.
    I am researching more as I type.
    I will let you know anything more I find.

    Regards,
    Robert 'Bob' Hind
