    Default Early Canadian casualties

    My earlier query re E.A. Cummings and responses thereto have tweaked my curiosity respecting three other early wartime casualties respecting Canadians enrolled directly in the RAF, and I would approiciate information on the following (most notably circumstances of loss):

    37201, PLAYFAIR, Anthony, killed in flying accident, 5 September 1939
    39167, GODFREY, Earl D., killed in flying accident, 4 September 1939
    580195, PRINCE, Albert S, killed 4 September 1939.

    There is also a little bit about Godfrey and Prince on one of my web pages, http://www.ody.ca/~bwalker/Cdn_others.html , just before the tables. This information came from Dunmore's book "Above and Beyond".
