    Thanks Malcolm for waking me up. RYALL indeed was in my files; for some reason omitted to delete his name from the 'unaccounted' list.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Default unaccounted arimen 4-10-41

    Ernest Henry Winnard 542334. Aircraftman 1st class.

    I am researching all commonwealth war burials and also war dead commemorated on family graves in my local cemetery.
    This person is buried in Swinton Cemetery Greater Manchester.
    The following are details taken from the local newspaper upon his burial.

    Killed in a road accident whilst on active service. Dispatch rider delivering a collection of tools to some of his colleagues at an air station "Somewhere" in England when his motorcycle hit the kerbstone and flung him off killing him instantly.
    Enlisted 1936/7. Address 69 Wellington Road Swinton, Lancashire ( the house still stands and is five minutes walk from my house)
    Before enlisting he worked for Manchester Colleries Ltd. His father was killed in WWI.

    Hope this info helps!. I have posted tonight 6 other RAF and RAFVR servicemen that I am researching.

    I also have Harold Clark who died 20 March 1943 age 28 who I think you have on your unaccounted airmen. Unfortunately as yet I have not found any newspaper articles.

    Kind regards Sue
