    Thanks Brian for additional info. Most was in my files however every piece makes a story complete. THOMPSON recorded by CWGC as THOMSON and only with initial "T".
    Death of NAYLOR was very tragic: he died in Forest Hospital Buckhurst Hill, Essex. Accident happened returning to his unit after 6 days' special leave awarded for the part he had played on the recent successful flight over Heligoland.
    Regards,
    Henk.
