    Default 430606 - Unaccounted airmen - 6-6-1943

    What were the places of death registration of the following airmen whose names I couldn't find in Flight Global:

    AC1 Cecil C. WADDEN - 1610304 - 80 Wing, Aldenham Lodge Hotel, Radlett, Hertfordshire (Radio/Radar & Radio Counter Measures Work), and
    F/Sgt Frederick J. WATERSON - 340240.

    Regards and thanks,
    Henk.

    Thanks Alan; perhaps Dennis is lucky to find their names in Flight Global; I tried in vain.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    I think I've found a problem, I checked the number of each Cas Comm in second half 1943, and Cas Comm 265 was never printed. 263 and 264 were in August 12th magazine. Cas Comm 266 was published in August 19th magazine.

    CAs Comm 264 ends at the end of a page, the next pages offered on the website are un-numbered Advertisement sheets (x2) and the August 19th magazine comes next. There might be a missing page 187?

    I'll need to check them all for this kind of thing.

    We need to check the Times newspaper to see if a missing list shows up. I'm planning to be at a library tomorrow.

    I suspect Wadden is in Times dated UAgust 19th but I'm not forking money out to find it. Tomorrow maybe.
