    Paul: thanks for this. I couldn't find a connection between William Jones and David Jones. I thought they might be brothers, but they appear in different households in 1939 (and in 1911). It is possible that they are cousins, or the coincidence of a very common name.

    A mystery solved! He appears in the death records as 'Male J Simpson', aged 28, killed in Holborn.

    Hi Jon

    Slight problem, he was supposedly serving with No 1 Ground Defence Gunners School on the Isle of Man and his death is registered in Sunderland, nowhere near North Weald?

    Looks like more than a slight problem, Ive just double checked and that's what it says, but I fully agree with you, poor Buffey will requite a further look deeper into his fate

    Apologies: I should have replied with the quote. 971659 Corporal George William Simpson. There are two George W Simpsons in the index to the death records, one in Hull and one in Scarborough, but neither seemed right. He is buried in Ripon, but checks against the 1939 Register suggested that the George Simpson buried in Ripon was not the George Simpson who died in Scarborough or Hull. With Jon H's help, it became clear that this is one of those cases in which the death record does not contain a first name or the first name is inaccurate.

    I've triple checked and what it says was correct . Gives no location where he was hit by the airscew or when, but it does say he died in Sunderland Royal Infirmary attached to North Weald, hit by revolving airscrew, died Sunderland Royal Infirmary
