    I note that Gasson and Smoothy both have death registrations in Howden.

    The Key Point Information Branch bulletin for 31/08-01/09/1941 (National Archives HO 201/11) states:

    2 A.P.B's

    R.A.F. Aerodrome, Holme, Yorkshire

    Damage to hutments
    No casualties are noted, but that they weren't always included in these bulletins, anyway.

    There was also a large raid on Hull on the same night.

    Other deaths are Holme on Spalding Moor were also registered in Howden, so this suggests a likely fate for Gasson and Smoothy.
