    Hi Henk
    Davis,63, registered at Cirencester,Gloucestershire which is also where he is buried,
    Fuller,35, registered at Hendon N London which could be right for his unit where the Balloons would spread from a Hampstead base and Hendon is only about 2 Mls from Hampstead
    Regards
    Dick
