    Excellent Col, I'd never have thought of a Civilian chaplain as such.

    So,
    Flight Magazine dated June 4th 1942 - Service personel listed as KOAS. (Ranks below are taken from the AirMin Cas Listing)

    CWGC dates of death all -
    Act. F/O Harold E Hunter + RNZAF - Belfast City Cemetery
    Sgt. William S Taylor + RAFVR - NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE (BYKER AND HEATON) CEMETERY
    Act. F/O John W Elliot + - RCAF - BELFAST CITY CEMETERY
    Assist. S/O Barbera K Balkiston-Houstan + WAAF - LOUGHINISLAND (ST. JOHN) CHURCH OF IRELAND CHURCHYARD
    Revd. James D Crawford + - Civilian Dead.
    Sgt. Henderson - Injured

    I don't see any henderson listed as injured in that copy of Flight listings.

    Dennis

    Sorry to hear about your personal circumstances

    As Errol posted:

    "The accident card apparently shows 6 killed and 1 injured (or died of injuries). "

    Evening all,

    Once again I'm going to stick my thick neck out!

    81690 F/Lt. Hugh Larmour MAGEE (Obs.), is on the CWGC (no unit mentioned), as dying on 16-3-42. There are definite Irish connections here, ie, Finaghy, Trinity College and buried at Carrickfergus (Victoria) Cemetery, Co. Antrim.

    Magee is listed in BCL9RoH/118, his unit being Feltwell. No.57 Squadron was based at Feltwell. Could Magee have been along for the ride ?

    Put some antiseptic on your boots, fellas !
    Col.

    There is no Hugh L Magee in the death index for Q1, when I search for Hugh Magee it brings me to the Mcg... page but the MAGEE page does not contain a Hugh Magee.

    No one in Q2 either.

    Scotlandspeople returns no Hugh L or Hugh Lamour MAGEE for 1941. There is a Hugh Magee, age 70 so I'd assume thats not him.

    Magee seems a very clear possibility with the Feltwell connection.

    Hi All,

    For what it is worth, Blakiston-Houston, Elliott, Hunter, Magee & Taylor, are all listed in 'The Times', May 26, 1942 RAF Casualty List, as Killed on Active Service.

    Col.
