    GRO RAF Index gives the following units for the Runnymede men as

    ESAU (1393290) : states just 'Turnberry', could this relate him to the number of 1 TTU losses that date? But then I see that conclusion was already arrived at: http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...891#post149891

    Leading Aircraftman Ronald George OUTLAW (1444399) More DetailsRAF 1943-10-08 United Kingdom Harrow Cemetery

    Via an email

    Apologies for troubling you but I have a little more information about this man, but there is no thread for him and I am unable make an addition to his database entry. From old research into F/O Jack Hutchinson and crew of 626 Squadron, I can add that:

    Outlaw was killed on airfield guard duty at RAF Wickenby in Lincolnshire. He was hit by a Lancaster from 12 Squadron. Pilot details not known to me.

    Initial Source was Target Lancaster by Jack Currie, confirmed by AIR 28/945.

    Hope this is useful.

    Jagan, while trying to find fate of:

    Pilot Officer Denis Macrorie DUNN (141755) Wireless Op

    I have find out that:

    http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=FA698
    Corporal Harold Walter GOVE (542976) Fortress II FA698 - he was not aboard according to the ORB, do we know what is source of this info?

    The 59 Sq ORB stated following casualties:

    F/Sgt Sandelin R. S. - we have already
    Sgt Fage J. - incorrectly linked with http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?qnum=71247
    P/O D. M. Dunn - we have to add
