    Thanks Malcolm. Those registered Weston-super-Mare may have been air raid casualties.

    hi Henk
    Just to round things off, There is an Edgar D Ballam,20, registered at Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.It is possible that was how his name was spoken and the spelling was taken literally by the registrar. It seems to confirm Martyn's post
    Regards
    Dick

    Oxford N6428, 15 PAFA, SIG Acaster Malbis, Yorkshire on this day. Acaster was in the Tadcaster reporting district.

    Seddon is registered at Chippenham in the 3rd qtr. Possibly connected with the loss of Hudson FH298? Although Lynham village is in the Swindon recording district, the airfield itself is on the border of the Chippenham/Swindon districts. The western end of the airfield almost certainly being the responsibility of Chippenham.

    OR possibly as a result of the CTO of Master T8285 at Castle Combe on the 23rd.

    regards

    Thanks DaveW. Perhaps Rich, our "Yorkshire-specialist" may have an answer on Oxford N6428 of 15 (P)AFU and Acaster Malbis.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Default Not air force history but interesting all the same

    Hi Henk,

    I had a go at finding out more about the RCAF man on this list, Joseph Evan Morgan of Blairmore, Alberta. I didn't find anything about how he died yet, but there is a fascinating story about his father, who was a member of council in this small railway town in the Crow's Nest Pass area of Canada's Rocky Mountains.

    Evan Morgan, who was from Wales, was not one of the communists. It is possible his son Joseph was born in Wales too.

    "Like many Canadian industrial towns in the 1930s, Blairmore had some sympathies with Communism. Canada's first Communist town council and school board were elected in Blairmore in 1933, which reformed the tax system, and refused to observe Remembrance Day as an Imperialist holiday and honoured the Russian Revolution instead. A street was named after the leader of the Communist Party of Canada, Tim Buck, a decision that was reversed by the next town council."

    The reporter in me couldn't resist a good story!
    David
