    OK, I figured out I was duplicating some information last night. While its not me doing the donkey work, I'd still link to the DOAS people, to direct people to those threads and prevent a relative or researcher starting a new thread. But down the line maybe.

    I had thought some of those people last night were new to the whole endeavour. It brought me back to my heady days when I was single, looking up the unaccounted into the wee small hours.

    Frank Ashton Bowyer an RAF mechanic was the driver of a motor cycle that was in collision with a bus 4 miles from Chester on 1st Sept 1939. He subsequently died but his passenger Thomas Ernest Jones a RAF Flight Mechanic survived and gave evidence at Inquest from a stretcher. I assume as he died 2 days later in hospital and as a result qualified for inclusion in CWCG list
