    Rosenthal,20, registered at Cheltenham, Gloucester and Andoversford is very close to Cheltenham
    Hendry,22 and Richard H Oakley,20,are registered at Deben Suffolk,the right area for Bucklesham and N6747

    Hi Henk
    The only possibility for Thomson is the accident at Denton. It is in the next County but the name is on the list for Grantham and W Kesteven.
    Long Newnton is in Wiltshire and Ouston is in Northumberland about 15m NW of Newcastle- on Tyne
    Regards
    Dick
