    Hi Henk
    Clements,25, registered at Shrewsbury, Shropshire
    Hawes, 19, registered at Fylde, Lancashire. (The register doesn't have the Middle Initial but CWGC does)
    Gibson didn't come up but I couldn't find a Ralph W Gibson on CWGC FOR 1941 either
    Regards
    Dick

    Clements was killed in a motor bike accident near Wem. I'm still unsure why he was in Shropshire, possibly on leave?

    Any mentions of the incident in 10 Squadron's ORB anyone??

    Cheers, Tom
