    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]

    CWGC have accepted all rank amendments for RCAF officers Clements, Young, McLeod, Drake, Howes, Gingrich and Fostey.

    Good work team.
