    And there is a Dennis Herbert .. Grey registered in Wick district of Caithness, Soctland sometime in 1942. The three christian names don't fit into the scotlands people search window,

    Howya Douglas,

    can you clarify this entry again, does the death record state 'found at Sinclair Bay'? and is it the 9th that the body was found. Just asking for henk, we have given him conflicting information in the past.

    regards

    Morning Dennis

    I have had another look at the record and the following is recorded :

    Dennis Herbert Conyngham Grey : F??/Sgt. Royal Air Force
    Found dead 9 September 1942 in Sinclair Bay Caithness : Usual residence Wellington Road, Dublin.
    There is no mention of his parents names.
    Registered on information of A. Clarkson for Wing Commander RAF Wick.
    Registered 10 September 1942, Wick.

    Best wishes

    Douglas

    Dennis, Douglas,
    Deleted GREY's name from crash sheet Z9518 and transferred back to the long list of airmen unaccounted for (KOAS 5-8-1942 - found 9-9-1942 - registered 10-9-1942).
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Dennis

    It's Lancaster. His death was reported in the Lancaster Guardian on August 7th. He was riding pillion on a motor cycle ridden by his brother Eric, which collided with a van at the junction of Blea Tarn Road and Hala Road the previous evening, and he died in the Royal Lancaster Infirmary. The article states that his brother Eric, who had been married the previous Saturday, was seriously injured.

    regards

    Simon
