    Sergeant Thomas John Sparrow (3142)

    Died 22nd March 1940, apparently listed as 'Died on Active Service' on 'official casualty list', according to a researcher.
    A confirmation from another RAFcommands user would be much appreciated for Sgt. Sparrow. I'm listing this info., because something is better than nothing...

    Thanks for all the updates - i am making the updates to the DB where possible. The only cases where I do not update is when there is no clear 'cause of death' available. So anything that is just recorded as 'Killed on Active Service' or 'Died on Active Service' is not being updated.

    regards
