    Hurst and Stanynought were with 16 EFTS, though the ORB recorded a slightly different serial.

    June 28th 1942, “Magister N3891 piloted by P/O Stanynought with P/O Hurst as 2nd pilot crashed + both occupants were killed at approx 0715 hours.”

    The accident occurred during Station Defence Exercises, the aircraft struck a tree.

    Hi Henk
    Hurst,32 and Stanynought,32 are both registered in the 3rd Qtr of 1942 at Shardlow, Derbyshire which could connect them to the crash at Burnaston
    Taylor,42 registered at Weston,Somerset
    Marciano,22,registered at Yarmouth,Norfolk
    Regards
    Dick

    Could Sgt Richard W. TAYLOR - 457716 - age 42, have been assigned to 8 AACU ? His death was registered at Weston, Somerset. 8 AACU lost Magister Mk.I serial N3831 two days earlier (26-6-1942) in a forced landing at Bishops Lydeard, Somerset, with both crew members injured.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hello

    Sgt Richard W. TAYLOR - 457716 - CWGC has 357716, unit as 14 R.C.

    The Wiltshire Times and Trowbridge Advertiser reported his funeral at Trowbridge Cemetery, and states that he 'met his death in the early hours of Sunday morning when the enemy made a sharp air attack on a West Country coastal district.'

    AC1 John A.F. MARCIANO - 1428197 - a family tree on ancestry.co.uk states that he was 'blown up by a mine' - no citation given.

    Regards

    Simon
