    Default Sgt John Newton VR 1113501

    Hi everyone,
    I am appealing to our genealogists please.
    Sgt John Newton VR1113501 died on 27-5-42 while flying with 86 sqn in Beaufort IIa, AW371, BX-Q off the coast of Norway.
    John Newton was another Oakham School old boy, from Skillington, Grantham but I cannot ID where the above Sgt came from.
    Thanks,
    Roy

    Difficult with only a single first name but the following individual was born in 'Grantham' district, I don't know of course if students woudl from far and wide or from the local area mainly??

    Name: John Newton
    Year of Registration: 1919
    Quarter of Registration: Apr-May-Jun
    Mother's Maiden Name: White
    District: Grantham (1837-1933)
    County: Leicestershire, Lincolnshire
    Volume: 7a
    Page: 551

    A John Newton was also born in the district in 1909 but I think the above would be a more likely age bracket.


    There are hundreds of John Newtons born between 1920 -1930. The lcoal papers or otherwise muight be a better bet.
