    The crashes you list at the beginning of this thread refer to 13th May 1941 - But the casualties are on the 12th May 1941

    Henk.
    Hello
    I wonder if you can assist me - it would appear that Walter L Draper was my paternal grandfather. He was never mentioned in our family and he died when my father was only 5 years old. My dad passed away 14 years ago and I am trying to garner some information relating to his dad for a family tree. Apparently Walter, known as les was always with Arthur Deeley who was married to my grandmothers sister. Could you direct me to sources where I can find out more about my grandfather and the circumstances surrounding his death?
    Thank you

    Hello 'Flower',

    Welcome to the board and all our rules.

    has anyone contacted you by PM with assistance. By the sounds of what is given above you are best to contact the RAF to try to obtain his service files and also to obtain a copy of death certificate.

    Also, Macolm and those who replied above might have copies of the documents their messages are based on.

    regards

    Dennis

    An update on ARMSTRONG 1061637. He was killed during an air raid on RAF Exeter. The 504 Sqn ORB Form 540 has the following:

    During night heavy attacks of 6 A/C each at Midnight and at 03.30 hours on Station. About 170 bombs dropped. Eight of our A/C damaged, 3 beyond our immediate repair. Runways damaged but Squadron able to carry out operational requirements. AC.2. W. Armstrong of Maintenance flight killed by bomb when acting duty fire crew on flare path. Our third casualty here from bombing.

    Regards

    Simon
