    Hi

    My apologies, I took my entry from Hobson 'Airmen died in WW2', yet another of the errors on the DVD.

    I Think we have tail wagging dog here - As I think we spectated a long time ago Price was on the Oxford - And no one disputed the link - I wonder if that is where CH got his info from :-)

    Hi Paul

    I took the data on Hilsdon from Hobson I didn't have Price on the Oxford nor did Hobson.

    Took me a while to find him . PRICE , an MT driver attached to RAF honnington , died on Burford road , curbridge , witney , of a fractured skull and. Right tibia and other multiple injuries when a motorcycle he was riding collided with a Lorre. I have NO mention of hilsdon linked with him but as Paul suspected , the co incidence of the same area , cause and both being RAF is rather striking. I can’t currently prove it . I’ve never tried . Oxford shire coronors reports are not ones I’ve yet requested to go and see , but I’d bet on it

    They maybe on same MotorCycle - But I note Hilsdon says Witney to Oxford Road (B4022) , whereas Price on Burford Rd (B4047) is the other side of Witney

    Hi Just wondering if this is the same Eric Emery ...... Why would he be mentioned in 208 ORB if he was in 226 Squadron, I wonder?

    Hi

    The death from Burns in 208 Sqn was AC1 F D Linaker.

    Emery was serving with No 226 Sqn, and died from peritonitis in No 1 or 2 Medical Receiving Station following an operation for appendicitis.
