    Default 430723 - Unaccounted airmen - 23-7-1943

    What was the place of death registration of AC1 Reginald H. CULLERN - 1084803 - age 30, whose name couldn't be found in Flight Global.

    Also looking for the possible cause of death of Sgt (Pilot) John M.A. CLARKE - 1385748 - 73 OTU (Abu Sueir, Egypt), buried Moascar War Cem., Egypt. Couldn't find his name in Flight Global. 73 OTU at that time flying Hurricanes but couldn't find a matching serial number in my Hurricane file.

    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.

    Thanks dg and Malcolm. For CLARKE forgot to check my Spitfire file as I thought that 73 OTU at that time were flying Hurricanes. Lesson for the future !
