    I can't see this name on the registers at all. For any quarter. Nor can I see him in Flight magazine.

    There is a 41 year old John Harding registered in NEWTON district which might be Newton district lancs, as opposed to Newton Abbot district, Devonshire. The latter I can see from the same page is written 'Newton A.'
