    Hi Henk
    An accident at Lyneham would probably be registered at Chippenham but if any on board were taken to hospital it would likely be RAF Wroughton, and a later death there would be registered at Swindon.

    Lyneham was in the Swindon registration area at that time, see http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/

    Hello

    F/Sgt (Pilot) Moran G. ('Mark') STEELE - 512566 - the Graves Registration Forms record him as being with 33 M.U. The Andrews Newspaper Index Cards on ancestry.co.uk record that he died in a flying accident.

    Regards

    Simon
