    Henk,

    Pilot of No.52 OTU Master was P/O D M Iverach.

    He was badly burnt but survived.

    Default 411205 - Unaccounted airmen - 5-12-1941 (For Buz)

    Hi Henk

    Could be either AK552 reported Cat E 7th Dec or more likely AN347 as you suggested...this one I haven't been able to sort due to the loss of 250Sqdn records for that time.

    Thanks Buz for info on GILMOUR and (possibly) AN347. Sgt Edmondston P. GREENHOW - 1059800 - also of 250 Sqn and 5-12-1941 (Alamein Memorial Column 243) remains on my "unaccounted" list; could he be a candidate for AK552 ? Air Britain (latest print) has for AK552: 250 Sqn - damaged on landing, LG.13, 22.10.41; NFT. May have been repaired ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Requesting any information on:
    Leading Aircraftman
    THOMSON, ERNEST CECIL Service Number 1387318
    Died 05/12/1941
    Aged 18
    Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
    Son of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. J. Thomson, of Wembley, Middlesex, England.

    He is buried in Burnsland Cemetery, Calgary Alberta. I presume he was attached to a training unit in the area.

    He is the uncle of my cousin’s wife. I would appreciate if anyone can provide additional details.
