    Updates in Progress

    Done!

    122,434 casualty records in this database

    116,637 records (95.27%) are "Accounted for".
    99,826 are aviation. 16,811 are non-aviation deaths.
    5,797 are still unaccounted.

    Unaccounted dips below 6000!

    Looking through 1940 entries, I noticed that the entry for a Battle of Britain pilot is a strange one

    Michael Duke Doulton 90235 he was killed in Hurricane R4125 which crashed South of Wennington Church, Romford, his remains being recovered from the wreck in April 1984

    From Kenley Revival on Facebook



    AC1 Albert John Asker’s ( Service Number: 1447285 ) death, on 20th September, 1942, is recorded by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, but the cause would have remained a mystery, had it not been for one of Kenley’s Canadian pilots – P/O Allister McClean Skinner, of 402 Squadron (RCAF) who wrote in his diary:

    "had quite a shock this A. M. At 5.30 was walking to my kite when an RAF chap on the sq walked into a prop on “A” [Flight] and was killed. Sqn collected £35 for his wife and family."

    R4125 doesnt exist... AIR81 said P4215 which is a swordfish.. turns out that its R4215.. So thats solved now! - Fixed it now in our DB

    AIR81/2963 Flying Officer M D Doulton: missing believed killed; presumed enemy action, Hurricane P4215, 601 Squadron, 31 August 1940.
