    Here are the ORB entries I have for the 10th, it doesn't really help other than to removed some possibilities.

    No.15 EFTS, July 10th 1941, “Accident to Magister N3817 at Kirkpatrick R.L.G., Pilot Cpl Szajda, W.H., carrying out unauthorised aerobatics and going into a spin.”

    The No.57 OTU ORB recorded "R65358 Sgt R. Nickerson killed at Ledsham", another one from the list

    No.5 EFTS didn't record a sinlgle accident during July 1941, it seemed to be who ever was writing the entries decided what he thought was important and sporting events were but unit accidents were not.

    Hi Henk
    Amos,23, Heal(e)y,20, and Whiting,26, are registered at Stoke, Staffordshire which might connect them but is not really right for any of your proposed a/c
    Ellwood,31, registered at Gosport, Hampshire
    Gardner,20, registered atBournemouth,
    Rivington,21, registered at Sleaford, Lincolnshire
    CWGC has Austin buried at Edinburgh which might connect him to the Magister at Turnhouse which is the name of what is now Edinburgh Airport
    Parkin is on CWGC but didn't come up on the register
    Regards
    Dick

    No.5 EFTS were stationed at Meir on the edge of Stoke in Staffordshire so those three registered in Stoke would fit with an accident at Meir.

    Austin is registered at Haymarket, Mid-Lothian so looks good for Magister V1084
