    Flying Officer Percy Cecil JACKSON (114298)
    Thanks to a cutting from a local Cumnock paper we know that Percy had been laid low with an attack of pneumonia and, in spite of all that an RAF hospital in the area could do, he died on 7 July 1943.

    Pilot Officer Albert Henry BAYLISS (135001) - needs verification!

    instructor, No. 20 (Pilot's) Advanced Flying Unit RAF (Kidlington)
    [Died following severe injuries in a flying accident. In the cockpit of a Bolton-Paul Defiant, P/O Bayliss was waiting for the all-clear signal to take off when another plane approached the runway with the apparent intention of landing. Disastrously the propeller of the in-coming plane, sliced through the cockpit and P/O Bayliss's death was instantaneous. Information received from the Air Historical Branch gives other details, however. He was not killed at 20 AFU on the 16th April but he was stationed at No. 21 Elementary Flying Training School RAF at the time and was killed in a Miles Magister # T9807 in a taxing accident involving another aircraft. He was with a Cpl Ramsey at the time, who survived the crash. The date of the accident is 10 April 1943 and P O Bayliss died later on the 16th in hospital of his injuries.]
