    Hi Henk
    Just going out to lunch!!
    Callaghan,18 and Calnan,19, registered at Rugby, Warwickshire
    Hailes,28, registered at Nottingham.
    Levett,34, registered at Oxford
    There is a Raymond Roberts on CWGC, buried in Manchester, but they have him on 70 Sqn that was based in the M East even before WW2! IF he died there it would explain why he is not on the Register for England and Wales
    Regards
    Dick
