    Hi Steve,

    just having a quick look at the BMD's on ancestry i can come up with a couple of suggestions, but i'm afraid i cannot confirm them to be your men for sure!

    Cyril Charles Bint born second quarter of 1901 in Aston, Warwicks. Only C C Bint listed between 1890-1910.
    Alfred Bertie Attaway born first quarter of 1902 in Faversham. Only A B Attaway listed between 1890-1920.
    Ronald Victor G Martin born last quarter of 1901 in Holsworthy, Cornwall. Only R V G Martin. Born 31st July 1901 and passed away April 1999 in Swindon.

    May be of help to you!

    Cheers, Tom

    Hi Tom
    Thanks for looking these up for me. They seem like likely contenders, thanks.

    Hi René
    Thank you for these.The "Pilot Sergeant A.W. Boucher" you list is the very one I am seeking, but the "Pilot Sergeant B.J. Marsden" you have is Bertram Joseph Marsden (KIFA 08APR43), who is a different chap to the H. Marsden I am seeking in my post. B. J. Marsden served with 41 Squadron between 1930 and 1934, whereas H. Marsden served 1926-1927. The unfortunate thing with 'Flight' and similar publications is that they only appear to list initials, and not full names; hence my query.

    Thanks
