    Hi,
    Barber, Harlow, Newman and Robbins were crew of Anson I - EG192 belonging to the School of General Reconnaissance based at RAF Leuchars.
    Dundee Evening Telegraph reported the aircraft as missing over the North Sea. Sgt Robbin was found by a Trawler a month later and buried at sea.

    Alan.

    Hi Jon

    "P/780061 Tadeusz Petry was admitted dangerously ill to SSQ at RAF Faldingworth on 24 September, where he died at 01:30 Hours of a cerebral thrombosis"

    He probably died in the RAF Hospital Rauncby as he is registered in Sleaford, Faldingworth was in the Welton district.

    I’d agree. A lot of Poles died in Rauceby. It doesn’t actually give a location other than in SSQ in this one
