    His name was among the crew of an aircraft discussed on an earlier thread:

    " Hi all,
    Here's the answer received today from the AHB/RAF:

    According to original surviving wartime documents, here in the Air Historical Branch archive, Pilot Officer William Foxlee was serving with No. 15 Operational Training Unit, RAF Harwell, No. 6 Group, Bomber Command. He was employed as the Observer aboard Wellington Mk. IC, Serial No. AD647, of No. 1 Overseas Aircraft Despatch Unit, RAF Portreath, No. 44 Group, Ferry Command. This aircraft was despatched on a transit flight from RAF Harwell to Bathurst, and was reported missing whilst on the Gibraltar - Middle East leg of the journey. The circumstances of the loss of thr aircraft were not known, as no news had been received since take off. The deaths of the crew were presumed to have occurred on 4th September 1942, and they were assumed to have been lost at sea. Wellington AD647 was piloted by Sergeant B Palmer, and the remaining occupants aboard the aircraft were listed as:
    Sgt F E Watkins (Employed as: Pilot)
    Sgt L G Rees (Wireless Operator/Air Gunner)
    P/O W G Storrier (Air Gunner)
    Sgt E Barr (Air Gunner)"
