    I can confirm Wainer and Would on the Oxford, you should also add Smith to this crew. I have seen the appropriate entries in the Scottish Death register.

    regards

    SMITH William Thomson (Thompson*) 135706 - died in the Dunbog District of Fife, of a fractured skull due to an aircraft crash.

    *The Statutory Death Notice on Scotland's People says Thomson, and the National Probate Calendar on ancsestry.co.uk lists him as "William Thompson otherwise William Thomson".

    Regards

    Simon

    EDIT - DaveW beat me to it!

    Hello,

    Having found my way to this site whilst exploring my family history, may I confirm that I am a niece of the late Corporal Enid Slaney Brown.

    Slaney (frequently erroneously reported as 'Stanley') was Enid's mother's (my grandmother's) maiden name.

    She did indeed die having been hit by a bus which was returning US Army personnel back to their base near Lichfield ,Staffs.
    The driver of the bus was in no way to blame .It was a tragedy for all concerned.

    I have in my possession and treasure greatly,her two WAAF Medical Corps collar badges which my late mother , Enid's sister, Mervyn was permitted to keep.

    Kind regards,

    Barbara (in Penzance)
