    Just to check the details on the PoW Experimental G/sheet! Was he 787572? His POW details are currently recorded as ‘Camp L3’ and POW No 39160? I note that Pavel(?) has given it his GREEN Seal of Approval! Can’t be too careful!

    CNN report from 2012 on the Kittyhawk found in the desert, sadly F/Sgt DCH Copping (260 Sqn) remains missing from 28 June 1942 (Alamein Memorial) - good photo of the crashed aircraft.

    Dennis still can't find actual death cause but I know it the thread but have to go through 23 pages to find i!

    I will wait until Jagan updates the main DB for all Jon recent changes

    To save you the wait Paul, here's what Jon wrote:

    Kenneth Scott Adlard 517596, a medically discharged airman at the time of his death, he died at 1B Roxburgh Terrace, Whitley Bay, of rectal cancer.

    As posted in the main 'unaccounted' thread, his funeral announcement was reported in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle, September 8th 1944:

    DEATHS

    ADLARD, Whitley Bay, 18, Roxburgh Tce., 7th Kenneth Scott (ex R.A.F.), dear husband of Margaret. Cremation, West Road, Newcastle, Sat. 10.30 a.m.
