    Hi Peter
    Barrick's death is registered in Lincoln. Within range would be incidents at Skellingthorpe, Scampton,Waddington and Metheringham and possibly Bardney. I'm not sure how many of these were fully in operation in 1940.
    Regards

    Listed as being from Tolney Lane Newark , either was living there or could have been with 58 MU that was based near the Castle Railway Station next to Tolney Lane. Killed at Bracebridge Road Lincoln when he was thrown from his motorcycle when he swerved to miss a woman that stepped into the road. Died at Lincoln Hospital soon after arrival.
