    Alex,

    HELCKE, Denis Arnold - Sgt - 745320 - RAFVR.
    Herne Bay Cemetery, Kent.
    Hurricane I - P3388 - 504 Sqn.
    >> According to the Air-Britain serials book, P3388 was SOC on 25 Dec 40. I wonder why it took so long?

    LANSDELL, John - Sgt - 740990 - RAFVR.
    Hempnall (St.Margaret) Churchyard, Norfolk.
    Hurricane I - P3860 - 607 Sqn.
    >> This was almost certainly P3933. See here: http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...949#post118949
    Can anyone add anything after all this time please?

    Andy
