    >> AIR81/2115 wrongly says 17 May 40: http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...ls/r/C16471445. His grave is marked 14 May 40.
    >> our serial database says N2535 lost 19 May 40 with 3 Sqn

    LE BREUILLY, Arthur Eugene - P/O - 42615 - RAF - 87 Sqn.

    Looks like I either missed these two airmen or the CWGC details came to light after my 400514 Unaccounted Airmen post.

    Battle L5516 - 103 Sqdn.
    P/O. Vernon Allan Cunningham - 36212 - RAF (New Zealander).
    and
    AC1c. Joseph Johnson - 617968 - RAF.

    Both at rest at Remilly-Et-Aillicourt Communal Cemetery, Ardennes, France.

    HOWEVER
    It now has come to light that They most likely were crew of Battle L5465 and that the crew of Battle L5516 escaped.
