    Hello

    LAWTON, Roy - AC1c - 2285878 - the National Probate Calendar records his name as Lawton. Newspapers reporting the accident at the time reported his name as Laughton or Loughton.

    SHAW, John Neville - F/Lt - 83133 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at Westminster Hospital. The Banbury Advertiser of November 27th 1946 reported that he died due to leukaemia.

    Regards
