    Hello Martyn,

    very useful sources there, is there an online newspaper database you got them from by any chance? Or are they from hard copies of the papers.

    There are a number of names I'd certainly like to look up in local papers from the UK.

    regards

    These local newspapers are not online unfortunately. I have been doing some research on names on the local war memorials and obtained this information from the local library archive.

    Default 410616 - Unaccounted airman - 16-6-1941

    Looking for more info on the death of LAC George W. HOOPER - 636841 - age 27, buried in the Moro River War Cem., Italy. He is reported in Casualty Communiqué 103, published on page 84 of the Flight Magazine 22-1-1942 as DOAS. CWGC has him as assigned to # 6 Squadron, at that time posted Qasaba in Egypt.
    Regards,
    Henk.
