    Can't find Draycott on a quick inspection of the BMD's
    Parker registered at Oakham aged 23.
    Haven't checked Stott, but it will be Whitchurch.
    Weber registered at Holderness

    Cheers, Tom

    Hello Henk Welting
    Norman Draycott aged 29, death registered at Sleaford.
    As Tom stated Alastair M Stott aged 19, death was registered at Whitchurch.
    Also Robert B. Weber's death was registered at Holderness which would sugest he was on Blenheim I - L8668 of 2 (C)OTU.
    Regards
    Andy

    With regard to Parker registered at Oakham, possibly killed in the loss of Anson N4910 which crashed at Ram Jam Inn, Stretton, Rutland. I already have as a possible casualty in this incident RG Hughes 1169220.

    regards

    Dave,
    N4910 and Hughes were in my files as well; the 12 FTS Anson crashed near Ram Jam Inn, Great North Road, Stretton. Added Parker.
    Regards,
    Henk.
