    Hi Steve,
    Just looked at the POW list in 'Footprints on the Sands of Time' and found that 250743 is listed there as Minson's POW number rather than his service number.
    Regards,Mark.

    Hi Steve,
    1354375 James Stanley Foster,57 part 1,page 426.
    1583721 Robert Arthur Martins (note spelling of surname) ,104 part 1,page 730.I believe Wilson may be 656088 Samuel Wilson-the service number is quite close to the one you posted.Have not been able to find any of the rest in Air78 I am afraid.
    Regards,Mark.

    Steve,

    Kemmery is Charles. How's this for a shock to the parents?

    http://www.newspapers.com/newspage/48025823/

    Believed Son Buried, Now Reported Prisoner in Germany LONDON, Nov. 13. (CP) Mr. and Mrs. E. Kemmery were chief mourners at the burial of a man they believed to be their son, an air gunner. Now they've been notified that the son, 22-year-old Sgt. Charles Kemmery, reported killed in a 'plane crash, is a prisoner of war in Germany. The identity of the man buried has not been learned.
    Regards,

    Dave

    WHITE J.P.J WO344 341 2 Sgt 1252770 RAFVR

    Part of answer is from Freebmd

    Births Mar 1922
    James P J White mothers maiden name Goldacre registered St.Geo.H.Sq.

    only J P J in 1915 to 1925 age range


    which then leads to

    http://www.airmen.dk/o888262.htm

    though I can't find him in Air 78 so either not scanned or scanned out of sequence
