    Default Unaccounted airmen - 4-6-1941

    What were the places of death registration for:

    AC2 Harold S. GRIST - 1272028, and
    Cpl Henry T. SPARKES - 337701.

    Could one of the following aircraft, lost this day, be a match to the above-mentioned airmen:

    Oxford I - R6105 - 15 FTS - abandoned 5 miles W of Woodstock, Oxfordshire.
    Tiger Moth II - N9390 - 19 EFTS - collided with a Spitfire and crashed near Sealand.

    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.
