    There is a 31 year old Joseph Arthur Wild in the Barr district, Ayr, Soctland.

    F M Flett is DOAS in the Sep 10th 1942 magazine

    Gave up looking for Watton, sorry!

    For Wild see my post for the 2nd.

    Shaw was recorded in the No.53 OTU ORB:

    July 3rd 1942, “Sgts Pearce and Swan killed in flying accident, colliding in mid air.”

    Default 53 Otu

    Multiple sources places the mid air collision on the 5th of July.

    Hi Henk
    Terry,20 is registered at Eton,Buckinghamshire,right for Taplow but it is a fair way S of Amersham and I think too far to connect him and East

    collided Welsh St.Donats, 2½ mile NE of Cowbridge, Glamorganshire.
