    Belgium
    Wild, Stanley - LAC - 1036561 - 85 Group

    Virgin, Norman Ernest Harold - F/Lt - sorry, not Warwick I HG121:

    Jefferson, Alan Glinn - F/Lt - 150455 - Contemporary newspapers report that he died when the car he was driving collided head on with a bus on the Barnstaple-Braunton road. Also killed was 40961 F/Lt Norman Ernest Harold Virgin. The inquest returned a verdict of accidental death.

    Marks, Eric James - F/Sgt (Radio Op[Air]) - 1602966 - the Taunton Courier of November 24th reports that he died in the air crash on the Moray Firth. The Derby Daily Telegraph of November 15th 1945 reports:

    The only survivor, so far as is known, of the Warwick bomber which fell into the Moray Firth late on Tuesday night is the first pilot, Pilot-Officer B. C. Cheshire, who was slightly injured. The body of Flight-Sergeant E. A. Marks, wireless operator-air gunner, was recovered from the sea
    The following members of the crew are missing, believed killed: Warrant Officer E. B. Lascelles, Second Pilot; Flying Officer P. F Parsons, navigator; Flight Sergeant F. S. Urquhart, wireless operator-air gunner; Flying Officer K. O'Neill, wireless operator-air gunner; Sergeant D. F. Hamblett, air gunner.

    No problem Malcolm. It was useful to have the Warwick crew actually listed in the newspaper reports.

    580224 Ernest Bruce 'Leatherneck' Lascelles was an instructor with 6 Operational Training Unit RAF, and had been a P.o.W. after being shot down in Hudson N7361 UA-G of 269 Sqn on June 12th 1940:

    Sergeant Lascelles' aircraft on 11th June, 1940, which carried out a bombing attack on the German battleship "Scharnhorst", two cruisers, and several destroyers anchored in the harbour at Trondheim. The attack was carried out in daylight and at extreme range for a Hudson aircraft. We were attacked by a number of enemy fighters and two of the aircraft in my formation were lost. In my opinion, it was probably due to the excellent combat carried out by the aircraft of which Sergeant Lascelles was the pilot that no more of the formation was shot down. It is reported that this N.C.O. on one occasion during the sortie attacked and destroyed an Me. 110 which was preparing to attack another aircraft in the formation. Sergeant Lascelles so skilfully manoeuvred his aircraft that his gunner was able to shoot down an Me. 109 and an Me. 110, thus greatly assisting his comrades in the formation. Finally, with his aircraft on fire, Sergeant Lascelles made a successful landing and was taken prisoner.
