    Default ALLEN, Clifford Bertram - Sgt (Radio Op [Air]) - 1896397 - RAFVR - Lambeth Cemetery,

    Dear Mr Smart, I can see this has been some time since you posted this .. but I am interested as to why you would have the above gentleman mentioned as 'Unaccounted Airmen' ?? He would have been my Uncle if he had lived, but he died too soon ... he was only 20 yrs old and married only for a few weeks.

    Forgive me if I am being rather simple .. but this is my first visit here .. and I have been searching for the HOW of my uncle died for decades to no avail .. but tonight I did manage to find out where and that the plane flew into the ground ... Not very clear I suppose but better than the very little info we had before now !

    Thank you for your help

    Susan in Portugal

    Hi Susan

    The 'unaccounted' simply refers to the fact that the circumstances of death for these airmen was unknown to the originator of this series of threads many years ago when he began recording the facts.

    All the best

    Malcolm
