    Hi Henk,

    Belanger and Zurbrigg both on the same page of Wigton register Page 750
    Sanderson Snoxell, Ring Hayward and McGregor all on Wigton Page 749

    So no clue there. They are all in the same register and on adjacent pages.

    So far I would best guess
    N7226
    Ring

    T9322
    Snoxell
    Belanger
    Zurbrigg

    Leave Sanderson floating but possibly T9322
    McGregor and Hayward possibly N7226

    Regards
    Ross

    Hello

    F/O Lewin H. ('Bunny') CURPHEY - RCAF J/7769 - his R.C.A.F. records include a letter from the Canadian Casualty Branch of the Air Ministry, dated December 8th 1944, which includes the following:

    J7769 F/O L. H. Curphey, R.C.A.F.
    The abovementioned officer was missing as the result of air operations in the Middle East on the 13th January 1943, and his body was subsequently found by 42 L.A.A. Regiment, R.A., on the 18th January 1943 in the locality of 503 Misurata, Tripolitania, map reference 1/500000. However, they were unable to bury his body owing to operations but identified his personal effects. On this information he was subsequently reclassified killed.

    Regards

    Simon
