    The 7 (C)OTU ORB also recorded Wilson, along with the other names you already have.

    I am not sure whether you have been able to identify the place of death registration from the other crew members. If so apologies for a wasted message. However, I can confirm that Sgt. James Michael Wilson is recorded at Kilcalmonell, County of Argyll. Memebers of his crew are all recorded similalry. The witness for the certificate is V.N Surtees O.C. RNAS Machrihanish.
