    I can download evidence pages for these RCAF men from their service records and I'll pop them in a drop box link. But it'll likely be a few nights before I'm online.

    Most of those buried actually have the correct service number on their own scanned graves reg form. McLeod is odd in that someones 'corrected' his s/n to the NCO one on the Grave Reg form!

    Just sent the following to the CWGC:

    Whilst carrying out some research, I noted that your records for Basil Vernon Robinson (https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/c...-basil-vernon/), show him as being on strength of No 35 Squadron at the time of his death.

    Squadron, Group and Airfield records show that, whilst he was flying in a No 35 Squadron aircraft at the time of his death, he was travelling as a passenger in his capacity as Station Commander, RAF Graveley (having been posted out of No 35 Squadron to that position in May 1943).
    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]

    Good work team.

    Tom Bone
    I have emailed CWGC with respect to their following entry:-
    1530067 BONE TOM T 21 06/10/1946 Leading Aircraftman Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve Sqdn. United Kingdom RUNNYMEDE MEMORIAL Panel 286. Son of William Henry and Annie Mary Bone, of St. Helens, Lancashire.
    This has no Service Number. It should be 3011976.
    The Marriage of his parents (above) William Henry Bone to Annie Mary Brown is Reg at Q3 1921 Longtown 10b 1020
    There is a FREEBMD transcription of a Birth registration:-
    b. Q4 1924 Tom Bone (MMS Brown) Reg Longtown(Cumberland) 10b 930 (FREEBMD records the forename as just ‘Tom’, and the parents seem to be as per the entry 1530067 (above)).
    He was, clearly, an ATC Cadet. He Enlisted 3011976 RAFVR in Block 3010000-3014917 Cadets ATC Padgate 1-May-43 onwards. (See TNA AIR 78/18/3 Image99 Left Bottom, which gives his sole forename as just ‘Tom’).
    d. 6 Oct 1946 as pax in York MW125 of 511 Sqn as ‘Tom Bone’ (RAFWEB).
    Whether this is sufficient ‘evidence’ remains to be seen!
