    Hi

    HAGUE, Sydney - He was serving at RAF Tangmere when he died in Haslar naval Hospital from Meningitis "submucosal nasectiops" of nasal septum.

    WARD, Michael James - He was serving with No 945 Sqn, and was killed at Hopehill when a balloon exploded during deflation.

    Alex,

    HAND, Charles Lawrence - Sgt - 544342 - RAFVR.
    HARDING, Walter Edmund - Sgt - 627362 - RAF.
    These two airmen were crew of Hudson I - N7359 - 224 Sqn.
    >> For some reason our database entry for this aircraft: http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=N7359 states two dates for this loss (21 Jun 40 as well).
    The 224 Sqn loss on 21 Jun 40 involved N7287, as per: https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C16471414 , and also correctly listed at http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=N7287
    Could you correct this please Jagan?

    SAUNDERS, William Anthony - P/O - 40756 - RAF.
    Blenheim - R3745 - 21 Sqn.
    >> This was R3742. AIR81/900 at https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C14502602 is incorrect. R3745 never served with 21 Sqn, and was eventually lost with 13 OTU in April 1943.
    A little more detail here: http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...0099#post90099

    Keep up the good work!
    Andy

    Hello Andy,
    Thank you.
    I got the N7359 from RAFCCL vol 1,page 441.
    The R3745, yes another typo , should have been R3742.
