    On 10.1.40 Master I N7422 of A&AEE broke up in a dive near Boscombe Down. The pilot, Fg Off David William Stannard baled out, but the observer, presumably civilian, was killed. Is his name known?

    Is it odd that there are no deaths recorded in CWGC for this period in civil or miscellaneous sections between the 9th and 17th January, 1940 Except One retiree who died at sea, and two Lighthouse men.
    Could the reported death (?) in relation to this a/c crash be incorrect ?

    Thanks Alex maybe not recorded as war death / the pilot killed in Spitfire prototype crash 4th Sept 1939 Flt Lt Gilbert Stanbridge White, is not on CWGC - maybe a look at Boscombe Down Area death registration may give a clue - but need the reference -

    There are 24 male Death Regs (aged between 20 and 50) in the Salisbury Reg Dist (incl Boscombe, etc) in Q1 1940. I can pass then in a s/sheet if anybody wants them - or I can paste here?

    Peter I was looking at those do you have the Vol 5a and page No and age as well

    Qtr1 was 5a Pages 525 662 ( found by trial and error) that is 128 pages for 91 days

    Some pages have 6 names others 1 or. 2 etc I wonder If by numeric analysis You could guess what pages were in use circa 10 Jan this assumes that they were recorded by some sort of order And I wonder how it worked at weekends - I know there can be a delay in recording

    But yes please 24 names is doable To cross check

    For instance Charles O Hand aged 34 is the first target I was going for but if you have a list already that is brilliant

    Thanks Paul

    Ps if you then cross ref with 1939 Register you can eliminate some names or instance Charles O Hand was a Bar steward In a working mans club so not him only 23 to go

    Great thanks makes my job easier

    Stanley H White can be discounted he was a Paving Mason and Cyril Moore a soldier who died 27 Jan 1940
    So only another 21 to go !
