    Default Unaccounted airman - 27-6-1940

    Hello Henk,

    F/Sgt William D. SHERIFF - 362166

    I can trace him to belong to 72 Sqdn. Service number 362116?

    Spitfire loss or death caused by other circumstances?

    Best regards

    Finn Buch

    Flight Global has Service # as 362116 (which is a typo) CWGC has 362166 (correct)


    Service # 362116 was Sergeant Leslie Frank PAYNE.
