    Default 21 O.T.U. loss, January 20th 1942?

    Hello

    Can anyone give me any details of a possible 21 O.T.U loss on this date? I have the following three members of the unit all commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial:

    CONNELLY, Edward, Sgt., 965779
    NUTTALL, Allen John, Sgt., 989219
    SLEE, Norman Clair, Sgt., 1359968

    Many thanks,

    Regards

    Simon
