    Default No 1 Sqn losses

    Hi All

    I'm now trying to tie up some loose ends in my records and wondered if anyone could identify causes of death for the following No 1 Sqn personnel in 1942: -

    22-Apr STOCKEN, GEOFFREY MAYALL Sgt Dartford 20

    The third column is the place of registration and the last column, the age.

    Cheers

    Malcolm

    Have been researching 1 Squadron for a forthcoming book. Col's info is correct, all I can add is that Stocken only arrived on the squadron two days before he was killed. He arrived from 56 OTU at Sutton Bridge. There was a steady deterioration in the weather on the 22nd to the point where flying was abandoned. Despite this Stocken went up in the Magister without permission from ops.

    I assume the Kingsdown mentioned is the one near Deal? At the time 1 Squadron was based at Croydon so he got quite a long way before coming down. The reason for the flight is not given in the ORB.
