    Hello

    I don't have an exact date but it was in 2016 AFAIK. The identification by the MRES back in the late 40es was based on a wrong process of elimination, and so the marked grave was changed for an "unknown" one.

    Iím pretty sure I have how Leslie Armstrong went missing but Iíd need to access my once again covid locked down jottings . I seem to recall he went missing following the evacuation of an airfield with ground staff but thatís just from memory . Iíll check when I can

    Thanks for the extra info, Joss, Col and Jon.
    Col, I have never seen that list before, do you know if it covers a specific time period, or is it supposed to contain every case that has ever been put forward?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    Not yet Tom , I havenít forgotten and Iím daily ploughing through stuff when I have time . I donít have a filing system though . Itís more of a dusty mound built up over 30 years in several places . If Iíve got them Iíll find them and I do recall those names. I found my jottings in two of the Belgian Runnymede lads today but they werenít with them
