    Thanks Col. Let's wait for Dick whether he has a death registration place.
    Regards,

    Checking CWGC registers found the names of THREE airmen sofar missing in my files. Can't find their names in Flight archives. What are the places of death registration for:
    AC2 (WOp u/t) Frank BILLINGHAM - 1192273;
    AC2 (WOp u/t) Arthur S. BUTCHER - 1290772, and
    Cpl (WOp) Victor C. CHITTOCK - 640119.
    They may have been posted with a Signals School. Is it possible they were on Dominie I serial R5929 of 2 SS ? This aircraft crashed at Easton Hill near Bishops Cannings, Wiltshire, killing
    AC2 (WOp) John BOOTH - 1000552;
    AC2 (WOp) Ivor C. BURGESS - 1073117, and
    AC2 (WOp u/t) John BATES - 1073782,
    death of all three registered at Devizes.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    These three also registered at Devizes.
    Just looked in 'Wings over Wiltshire' which says there were seven fatalities in this incident, but only naming three, Billingham, Butcher and Chittock. One to find.

    Thanks Dave. Could #7 have been AC2 Geoffrey W. GOODDY - 1259461 ?
    If this airman registered Devizes, the pilot of R5929 may have survived !
    Regards,
    Henk.
