    Hello Henk

    Kendray at Sleaford and probably associated with one of the Cranwell incidents.

    Lindsey at Edzell and associated with Master N7715, also killed in this a/c Kenneth Robinson.

    Raymond at Coventry, no suggestion

    Smith, there are 15 John W Smiths registered, with five of them being of the right age.

    regards

    Thanks Dave.
    Perhaps Errol has info on KENDRAY because also an NZ-airman was involved in Oxford R5950.
    LINDSEY was - as far as I know - sole occupant on N7715. I don't have Kenneth ROBINSON as a casualty on 4-10-1940.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Lindsey was the sole occupant of N7715 as it was recorded as that in the ORB.

    October 3rd 1940, “Master aircraft N7715 stalled and was burnt out at Edzell whilst night
    flying No.748417 Sergeant Lindsey, No.22 Course, the sole occupant was killed.”

    Gents

    I have a copy of the death register for Edzell District which has the names of Robinson and Lindsey consecutively. The writing is hard to read but I can confirm Robinson's death on 12th September (recorded 13th). Apologies for misleading. This means that Robinson was killed in the crash of Master N7819 at Edzell.

    regards

    Default Eberhardt

    CWGC does not shown any Eberhardt being killed at all so maybe he survived the collision.
