    Hi Henk
    Daley,28, Read,25, and Wills,19, are all registered at Pembroke, S W Wales
    Duthie,20, registered at Kings Lynn,Norfolk
    The only Arthur R Bull,28 I could find was in the 3rd Qtr of 1941 and registered at Windsor, Berkshire. CWGC do not give an age and have him as buried at Brookwood Military Cemetery, SW of London and not very far from Windsor.So the Qtr is not correct but it might have been another delayed registration for an Inquest.
    Regards
    Dick

    Dick,
    DALEY, READ and WILLS may have been air raid casualties. For same date already on file: Sgt Gordon J. GOULD - RAAF 1785, 10 (RAAF) Sqn: 'Pres. died of injuries sustained during an air raid on Pembroke Dock 10-6-1941 (attempting to extinguish incendiary bombs)'.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Default Unaccounted Airmen 11-06-1941

    Hi Henk,

    Unaccounted Airmen 11-06-1941

    West Walton was within the registration district for Kings Lynn so that would seem to tie up the Hurricane L2055 with Sgt Andrew Duthie

    Hi Henk
    Gould is also registered at Pembroke,which helps the idea that the others might have been victims of the same raid
