    All of 1940, 41 and 42 is up there now, and I have software at home on my laptop (pdf995) which allows me conbine the individual pdf's into large documents so I can complete them at home as such rather than at work.

    Hi Henk,

    Rich Allenby has covered Jepson's loss (I can't access his site at the moment). I'm surprised he hasn't been in touch.

    Rich gives Jepson's W.Op/Obs. as, 1160303 Sgt.William Thomas HIGGS. He is buried in Birmingham (Brandwood End) Cemetery. Sec. B.14. Cons. Grave 3306.

    Col.

    Default Unaccounted airmen - 9-1-1942

    Checking CWGC cemetery registers again found the name of an airman sofar missing in my files. What was the place of death registration for:
    LAC (Pilot u/t) Eric D. ABERDEEN - 1213835 - killed on active service, and
    could there be a match to any a/c serial as mentioned in message #1 of this thread.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Aberdeen's death is registered at Sleaford, Lincs, possibly in connection with the loss of Oxford X6661 of the RAFC, 4m SW of Digby. I already have as a possible casualty on this a/c 1312145 McCoy RW.

    regards
