    Hi Henk
    Burns,27, Newcombe,22, registered at Cleveland, then in N Yorkshire and the right area for Thornaby and T 5355
    Monaghan not on the register(possibly a W/op-AG on the Invergordon Sunderland)
    Heeley also not on the register
    Regards
    Dick

    There is a 29 year old Leonard Heeley in the Glouchester Rural district, the name is in 4th quarter of 1942, a late registration.

    Newcombe is of course KOAS, his name is with the other two men in that paragraph of names.

    Thanks Phill for info on Magister V1083. Sgt G. M. SHOULDICE (R/97371) may have been same airman as P/O Graham M. SHOULDICE (J/18082) killed 17-8-1943 on Spitfire MA615. Perhaps one of our Canadian friends may confirm.
    Regards,
    Henk.
