    GREEN, Anthony Charles - Pilot II - 1808285 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died near Harbourneford, Devonshire. The North Devon Journal of March 4th 1948 reported the unveiling of a memorial to him at Heanton Church, and that he was killed in a flying accident in January 1947. Was he therefore the pilot of Spitfire TE253?

    McPHAIL, Robert Morrison - W/O - 1574305 - the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that he died at about 6.30 p.m. at the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, Dumfries as the result of a compound fracture of the skull, due to a road accident.

    Regards

    Simon
