    Dear Paul,
    I have looked at my photos again and I am sure that you are correct.... it is T.W. Brandon. Sorry for my mistake, The T's and I's are very similar in the Gothic font that has been used.
    Best wishes

    There is an E Vincent listed, i wondered might he have been Eric William VINCENT, crew member injured in Sunderland G-AGES, he was a serving RAF member. Tho I do have at home the BOAC crash notes so that will mention if he suffered burns.

    Hi James,
    I’d like to add:

    http://www.eastgrinsteadmuseum.org.u...oria-hospital/

    There is a photo showing the Roll of Honour in Canadian Wing of the hospital. You have the same one.

    2 x 42 names + 13 x 43 names = 84 + 559 = 643 names. You have 636 names (636 rows).

    Add to columns:
    1st: J.A. Anderson
    4th: K. Davies
    9th: J.M. Bride, S. MacCormac, A.C.H. Maclean
    10th: divide J.G.E. Munt / G.D.I. Neale
    13th: divide E. Stangryciuk / (E. Black)

    Best regards
    Mojmir

    Possibililty for E. VINCENT - P/O Edward VINCENT RCAF - Wounded Or Injured On Active Service - Flight - April 6th 1944. p.380 - Cas. Comm. No.367.

    P/O Edward VINCENT RCAF - Dangerously ill - (Father) Edward Vincent, 80 Ballilol St., Toronto. Globe and Mail - 17-2-1944.

    Can anyone add to the above?

    Col.

    Dear Mojmir,
    Please accept my apologies for my errors. It is the same memorial as the one shown on the East Grinstead Memorial web site.

    Regarding your additions I would agree with:
    1st: J.A. Anderson
    4th: K. Davies
    9th: J.M. Bride, S. MacCormac, A.C.H. Maclean (but should be J. McBride)
    10th: divide J.G.E. Munt / G.D.I. Neale
    13th: divide E. Stangryciuk / (E. Black) (I understand that this is the same Polish man who changed his name to Jan Black by deed poll because the brits could not pronounce it. Maybe Franek can confirm this as our Polish specialist?)

    Apologies again for my errors. Thank you for spotting them. I do appreciate it as it is important that we get things right.
    Best wishes
    James
