    There is a George Bleasdale aged 32 registered in Poole
    Bryant registered in East Glamorgan aged 32
    There is Victor Calvert registered in Buckrose aged 25. If i remember correctly Buckrose would include Driffield, so could be the Blenheim.
    Challen - registered in Dorchester aged 23.
    Dale - Dorchester aged 26.
    Fawcett - Dorchester aged 25.
    Hipkin - Dorchester aged 43.
    Leonard - Dorchester aged 19
    Morey - Dorchester aged 41
    There is an Allan Thompson aged 34 registered in Worcester.

    As you state it looks like an air raid on Warmwell for all those registered in Dorchester (near to Warmwell). I've got a book on Dorset at war at home so i'll check that later for some confirmation.

    Cheers, Tom

    I suppose that I can talk for everyone on this forum Henk - we are glad to help you as you have also helped us many times.

    I know what is building up such database as I have made one only with about 600 airmen. It is Tantalus work.

    And to be honest your "unaccounted" posts are now indiscerptible part of this forum:-)

    Good luck
