    Default Unaccounted airmen - 19-6-1941

    What were the places of death registration for:

    AC1 Thomas H. BROWN - 1102531;
    LAC (Pilot u/t) Victor L. DEROO - 1066756;
    AC1 Thomas JONES - 948629;
    P/O (Pilot) Kenneth LANCASTER - 101484;
    P/O (Pilot) Kenneth H. ROWLANDS - 86348 - 152 Sqn (Portreath, Cornwall);
    AC2 Kenneth TREVARTON - 1279351, and
    Cpl Clifford WADDINGTON - 1155761.

    Proposed aircraft losses for this day:

    Oxford II - V3563 - 6 FTS - damaged byond repair in accident; no further details.
    Spitfire IIA - P8019 - 1 Del Flt - overshot landing at St.Eval.
    Tiger Moth II - R5031 - 7 EFTS - abandoned Ellistown, Leicestershire.

    I fear no match of any airman to proposed a/c losses.
    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.

    Hi Henk
    The only likely Jones I found is age 19 (as on CWGC) and is registered at Peterborough where Cwgc has this Jones buried.
    Lancaster,28,registered at Louth ,Lincolnshire.
    Rowlands,21, is registered at Redruth, Cornwall, possibly the Spitfire at St Eval
    Treverton,19, is registered at Trowbridge,Wiltshire
    Waddington.31, registered at Rugby, Warwickshire.
    The only Thomas H Brown was age 62,registered at Bideford, Devon
    and Deroo didn't come up at all
    Regards
    Dick

    Victor Louis Deroo ,19, is on CWGC, buried at Halton, but I couldn't find him on the England and Wales Register. CWGC has his N-O-K as a mother in Liverpool, so he wasn't taken home for burial.Apart from an airfield and Apprentices Training, I believe Halton was also an RAF Hospital. If he died anywhere near there he ought to be registered at Aylesbury.

    Hi Henk
    For Victor Deroo,what Dave has just put up (with the typo in the register) could be the man, if again the death required the attention of a Coroner and the registration was delayed.

    AC2 K Treverton is listed DOAS in the Flight casualty listings, different to what Ken reported above. Magazine dated Sep 25th 1941.

    Other wise all others match up with Flight listings.

    There is a AC1 T Jones listed DOAS also in July 24th magazine.

    Hello

    LAC (Pilot u/t) Victor L. DEROO - 1066756 - he's listed as being with No. 1 E.F.T.S. on the Graves Registration Report Form, and the Liverpool Evening Express of July 4th reports that he "has been killed whilst flying."

    P/O (Pilot) Kenneth LANCASTER - 101484 - listed as being with 56 O.T.U. on the Graves Registration Report Form, and the following is on the findagrave website:

    https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/f...94755&ref=acom

    "From Lincolnshire's 'Bomber County Aviation Resource':- While on a cross-country flight, Pilot Officer Lancaster's aircraft suffered a problem in very bad weather; the airman was killed in the incident."


    Cpl Clifford WADDINGTON - 1155761 - the Rugby Advertiser of June 24th 1941 reported the following:

    R.A.F. CORPORAL KILLED
    Watford Gap Fatality
    A verdict that he died from injuries received when he drove his motor-cycle too fast round a "notorious corner" was returned by the Coroner (Mr. E. F. Hadow) at the inquest at Rugby on Saturday on Corporal Clifford Waddington (31), R.A.F., who was killed at Watford Gap, on the Watling Street, last Thursday afternoon.


    Regards

    Simon
