    Hello,

    Three (3), names need to be added to the list of casualties aboard York I MW126:

    ACM Sir Trafford LEIGH-MALLORY KCB, CB, DSO (amongst many others), RAF +
    Lady Doris Jean LEIGH-MALLORY + (wife of above)

    http://static.awm.gov.au/images/coll...25_008--1-.pdf

    With incidental material on 107984 F/L Peter CHINN RAFVR, here:

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...-OTU-15-2-1942

    Malcolm, You have omitted 126892 F/L (Nav.) Keith Alan MOORING RAFVR, from your listing.

    Hi Col

    Somehow I deleted Mooring from my listing by mistake.

    I assumed the others were not unaccounted as Alex hadn't included them.

    Hello

    COATHUP, Leslie Selkirk - Sgt (Pilot) - 1523138 - also in Magister R1906. The G.R.R. on his CWGC entry confirms his unit as 10 F.I.S., and his death was announced in the Liverpool Echo of November 16th 1944 as the "result of a flying accident."

    See: http://www.rafcommands.com/database/....php?qnum=8976

    SYRETT, John Frederick - LAC - 910098 - the Middlesex Chronicle of November 25th 1944 reported the inquest into his death. It records that he was an R.A.F. despatch rider, and was killed when his motorcycle collided with a lorry on the Great South West Road, Bedfont. A verdict of accidental death was recorded.

    Regards

    Simon
