    Ancestry.com have a database: Reports of Deaths of American Citizens Abroad, 1835-1974

    it includes entry's for men like Louden, serving with the RAF, but not American service men serving with the US Armed forces overseas. Normally each person at least has an 'American Foreign Service' Form 192 filled out by the local consulate, legation. In the case of L B Louden the following useful info can be taken from the form

    Place of Death: Glen Moor House Farm, Low Pittington, Co. Durham
    Buried: September 20, 1941 at 10:30

    Father Mr G B Louden, Mist, Oregen, USA

    Note that his service number is RAF format, Canada ought not have a file in anycase. RAF records is who you need to approach, 30 in hand.

    He arrived in England on August 14, 1941 with the following group of 'Air Pilots', with onward address, c/o British Air Ministry, H/Q, London

    Hugh Card BROWN
    Forrest Melvin COX
    James COXETTER
    Kenneth Leroy HOLDER
    James PECK
    Donald William MCLEOD
    John Joseph LYNCH
    Lewis Benjamin LOUDEN

    Correction

    Gordon McD Jackson has been associated here with the loss of Master N7956, he should be linked to the loss of Oxford V3542 on the following day at New Zealand Farm. The casualty on the Master was Trevor Audsley 1290114.

    Hello

    AC1 Francis W.C. MITCHENER - 915983 - the Western Gazette of September 26th 1941 carried the following announcement:

    MITCHENER - September 14th, at 55, Coldharbour, Sherborne, Francis Walter Charles Mitchener passed peacefully away after an illness patiently borne, aged 19 years.


    AC2 Victor E. ALLMAN - 1452304 - the Lincolnshire Echo of September 18th 1941 reported the following (edited for brevity):

    Walkers Should Keep to Footpath
    Verdict of "Death by Misadventure" was returned yesterday at an inquest at Bracebridge Heath, Lincoln, yesterday, on A/C.2 Victor Allman (41), married, whose home was at norwich, and who received fatal injuries when knocked down by a car on the Lincoln-Nettleham road on Saturday night.
    The jury exonerated from blame the driver of the car, Thomas Kininmonth Dundas, of Scothern, and added a rider that pedestrians should again be warned to walk on the footpath and not on the road.
    L/A.C. Allen Redfearn said about 10.5 he and five others, including Allman, left the Brown Cow Hotel, at Nettleham, and started to walk along the road hoping to catch a bus.
    Dundas said he had driven a car for 20 years without an accident. He had two sidelights and masked headlight. He saw the men too late to avoid the accident. His beam of light was only about 15 yards. He was driving about 20 m.p.h.
    Medical evidence was that Aircraftman Allman died from shock resulting from injuries which included fractures of both legs.


    Regards

    Simon
