    Hi Chris
    It's a long shot but http://www.cwgc.org/search/casualty_details.aspx?casualty=2810861, gives details of a Sidney Richard Pascoe,28 who died in Apr '44 and is buried in Tynemouth. He has an extra name and does not appear in Chorley's Vol 9 Roll of Honour so was probably not Bomber Command when he died. His death was registered at E Dereham, Norfolk very close to Swanton Morley. Hope it does not mislead. He is recorded as F/Sgt and on that timescale one would have expected a bit more promotion
    Regards
    Dick
