    Hi Henk
    Warner's Blenheim has Burrow,24 and Spencer,25 as the crew of N3571 . Their deaths are registered at Andover as you have them, but Warner spells Burrow as Burlow which I think might be his error. I found an Eric J K Megaw, 30. registered at Cardiff and that was the name that came up on CWGC
    Edit: To back Ross, Jeffery,22, is also registered at Andover
    Regards
    Dick

    Hello

    Sgt (Wop/Ag) Eric A.V. SPENCER - 581537 - the Graves Registration Report Form confirms him as being with '2 S. of A.C.' as do the entries for Burrow and Jeffrey.

    S/Ldr Jack K. MEGAW - 28049 - Eric Jack Kennedy Megaw. He's listed as being with 8 A.A.C.U. on the Graves Registration Report Form. The National Probate Calendar records that he died at Penylan Terrace, Cardiff. Maybe a victim of the Cardiff Blitz?

    More about him here:
