    AC2 Samuel Sidlin is listed on GRO RAF Overseas deaths as RAF Stn, Biggin Hill,
    were there large raids on Biggin Hill that day?

    Samuel Sidlin 928228, attached to RAF Biggin Hill , was judged by a court of enquiry to have been killed in an air raid in the Tottenham Court area of London.
    Great Damage Was done to a building at 22:00 hours and several people, including service personnel were killed. No trace of his remains were found but civil defence found his ID discs and driving licence at a bomb site. He had delivered an Albion lorry to Gravesend that day and was absent without leave, having been reported as such to RAF Police. The ID discs and driving licence were reported to the Air Ministry on 28 September.
