    Default Unaccounted airmen - 18-12-1940

    What caused the death of and/or what were the places of death registration for:
    LAC (Pilot u/t) Albert E. HALLS - 961773, killed on active service, and
    AC2 Thomas JONES - 1021753 - Runnymede Panel 27, missing (could have been on board SS Napier Star ?).
    Proposed aircraft losses for this day:
    Anson I - N5147 - 12 FTS - flew into ground at night near Harlaxton landing ground.
    Magister I - T9740 - 24 EFTS - crashed in forced landing Harpenden, Hertfordshire.
    Tiger Moth II - N9324 - 13 Sqn - spun into ground Hooton Park, Cheshire.
    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.

    Halls death registered in Grantham (just to the NE of Harlaxton), aged 21, so it looks like the Anson.
