    Default 420908 - Unaccounted airmen - 8-9-1942

    What were the places of death registration for:

    A - Died on active service:
    F/Sgt Jemuel R. EDWARDS - 1286856 - 29 Sqn (West Malling, Kent), and
    AC2 James L. MORGAN - 1412312 - age 20.

    B - Not found in Flight archives:
    F/O Francis J. TRUMBLE - 82794 - age 58.

    Just for the case F/O Trumble might have been on board of an aircraft (but also pay interest on names of airmen who survived aircraft accidents):
    Hurricane I - Z4059 - 59 OTU - crashed in forced landing Foulden, Berwick.
    Hurricane I - V7019 - 56 OTU - flew into ground near Luthrie Station, Fifeshire.
    Havoc I - AH492 - 85 Sqn - crashed in forced landing 1 mile W of Thame.

    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.
