    Thanks

    Paul
    No, it's not him. This one died May 17th.

    However, on a hunch, I widened the search date, and I did find a George Francis Barr, died January 17th 1941. He is recorded as an Aircraftman, R.A.F., and he died at 4.20 p.m. at 133 Balornock Road, Glasgow (the address of Stobhill Hospital), due to bronhco-pneumonia. It also records that he had been removed from Military Hospital Shenley, Herts. He was the son of John Anderson Barr and Rose Barr.

    Looks like the CWGC may have the wrong year...?

    John Charles Francis Bovington, whose home is at Failand, near Bristol, climbed on to the roof of a tractor which was being driven over open land at Manston.

    It looks like (based on civilian deaths in St Pancas that the 5 airmen killed 20 Sept 1940 were killed at Kings Cross at least 1 possibly 2 Café’s were bombed so that might explain their location but other addresses in area were also hit

    Paul

    With regards to the date of death of George Francis Barr, I've dropped the CWGC an e-mail, and attached the entry from the Statutory Deaths Register. I'm guessing nothing mayl happen for a while, bearing in mind the time of year!

    Also, the Graves Registration Report Form on his page on the CWGC website confirms his unit as No 1. B.T.U.

    Regards
