A year or so ago i put up a message that i was trying to trace a Mr E.G.H.Day who spent some time in the Oxford area 1943....
i actually managed to find an E.G.H.Day who was shot down in an Avro Lancaster W4242. 106 squadron. on 08-10-43....all the crew were killed.
although it must be unlikely that you would have 2 men with exactly the same 3 initials in the same time span, i have real doubts that this is the man i,m trying to trace...

I guess i,m clutching at straws here,but i was considering the possiblility that he may have been through an OTU course at Abingdon or in the Oxford area in 1943 and flew in the above mentioned Lancaster on October 8th 1943....would that be feasable?

anyway...thanks for looking
Steve.
