    Right got to LB240

    F1180 gives 4 fatalities (looks like one died later)

    Pilot F/O P Grove, 120779 (according to CWGC he died the following day)
    P/O K Wade, 132725, +

    So two others to be added and these look like Newman and Lane.

    Regards
    Ross

    Which Thomas Edward Jones is this? I cant find an appropriate 'Pensioner' aged airman with this name.. what was his date of death?

    PS..

    All updates done to this point

    122,438 casualty records in this database. 116,874 records (95.46%) are "Accounted for". 5,564 are still unaccounted.

    565 records away from what was considered impossible a few years ago???

    Thomas Edward Jones 529752 , pensioner merely means in receipt of a pension Jagan, in this case a disability discharge one. Not age relate
