    Pilot Officer Stanley THOMPSON (79787) 1940-08-05 United Kingdom Maidenhead Cemetery

    http://www.epsomandewellhistoryexplo...html#ThompsonS

    "On 3 June 1940, Stanley was re-commissioned as a Pilot Officer on probation for the duration of hostilities. In what are currently opaque circumstances, he was declared "missing" but later registered (in the Hammersmith District) as having died on 5 August 1940, just two months after his re-commissioning."

    -> More work needed on this - Maybe air raid death ???
