    Both Proctor,24 and Taylor,23 are registered at Whitchurch which would be right for Ternhill . Meir is not far away but I think we've had deaths there recorded at Cheadle Cheshire. Obviously there is the date difference to work out but I suppose both could have survived a crash and died of injuries later
    Regards

    Thanks Dick for info on Proctor and Taylor. No write-off 5 FTS for 16th and two fatally injured in flying accident; both died 18th. For the time being my preference goes to Master N7823 on the 18th.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hello

    Lac (Pilot u/t) Richardson K. DAVIDSON - 1060807 - the Graves Registration Report Form confirms him with 14 F.T.S., which would tie him in with Oxford I R6087.

    Regards

    Simon

    1356684 Aircraftman 2nd Class William Arthur Jones

    After a bit more sleuthing through the 1939 Register and an earlier census, I think I have discovered a bit more about AC2 Jones' death. In the heavy air raid on April 16, 1941, a number of people, including firewatchers and ARP personnel, were killed along Stockwell Road between Stockwell Lane and Stockwell Green in Lambeth. AC2 Jones lived in Stockwell Green in 1939, and one of the people killed on Stockwell Road was his nephew, Edward Pavey, who lived in Stockwell Crescent. It remains circumstantial, but it seems reasonable to assume that he AC2 Jones was one of the casualties in this part of Lambeth on that night.
