    LOCK, George William - nothing on Scotland's People. He has an entry on ancestry.co.uk which states that he died "whilst flying in the UK" - not sure whether that means he died in an aircraft crash or not? The National Probate Calendar lists him as LOCKE, and states that he "died on war service."

    Regards

    I believe the serial for the Anson should read 'NL128'. (ABS)
