    I have looked at this again and can confirm Baker's Cross, Holton Heath, Poole, Dorset as the location of the crash of Master T8626 13/01/1942. There is a pub, The Bakers Arms at 195/0955926 near to a crossroads with the A35. The road layout looks a bit different from what it was in 1942 but the fact that the pilot's death is registered at Poole discounts the Wiltshire site.

    regards

    Default The Unaccounted Project - Final Stretch Updates by Jon Heyworth

    Iím sure he has some wrong in the far east . C V Windmill 938547 was definitely electrocuted accidentally at RAF seletar . I think , although Iíve not yet found it my jumbled notes for that area, that 938539 G Bamford, is incorrect too and that they have both been caught in a shotgun approach ?
