    Looking for info (cause of death, death registration) of:

    Sgt (Airbomber) Thomas D.McI. BREEN - 1558942 - KOAS - death registered North Buckinghamshire. (He may have been on Wellington I.C serial X9622 of 26 OTU but not listed by Chorley in his volumes 7 and 9).

    LAC Robert H. NELSON - 1039759 - DOAS.

    Proposed aircraft losses:
    Spitfire II.A - P7529 - 57 OTU - crashed on landing Eshott.
    Havoc I - AE458 - 51 OTU - crashlanded Twinwoods Farm.

    Hello Pavel,
    Tricked by Air Britain's Aeromilitaria (Crash Sites in the UK during WW2) edition Spring 2008 and Aeromilitaria edition Summer 2008. Ignore the one for 11-12-1942 as in Air Britain EA100 - EZ999 is listed "7-11-1942".

    Regards,
    Henk.

    if I assume the crew of X9622 were
    APPI, STEPHEN RENATO Nil Sgt obs North Bucks Buckinghamshire KOAS
    BARCLAY, WILLIAM BENZIE 20 Sgt nav North Bucks Buckinghamshire KOAS
    BELL, DONALD 22 Sgt WOP North Bucks Buckinghamshire KOAS
    FRYER, DOUGLAS HENRY 21 F/Sgt WOPAG North Bucks Buckinghamshire KOAS
    JONES, EDWIN CHARLES 23 Sgt pilot North Bucks Buckinghamshire KOAS

    BREEN, THOMAS DAVID MCINTOSH 19 Sgt AB North Bucks Buckinghamshire KOAS
    They are on consequtive pages of the register.

    http://www.602squadronmuseum.org.uk/history/ww2.php also has no suggestion for Hauser.

    Hauser and Johnson are in the same missing list in April 1st magazine among a large list of missing.
    However they appear together, only their two names as

    PBEVIOUSLY REPORTED MISSING, NOW PRESUMED KlLLED ON ACTIVE SERVICE—Sgt. P, L.
    Hauser; Sgt. J. Johnson.

    In the 11th November magazine. I wonder if they were maybe ferrying an aircraft (or plural)

    Dennis,
    FRYER was on Wellington BK243 of 12 OTU. For his name I've on X9622: F/Sgt Darwin J. CLARK - R/122070 (RCAF from USA) of 26 OTU; he was injured and died the day after (12-12-1942).
    I've BREEN on my unaccounted list with note: KOAS, death registered North Bucks, Buckinghamshire - may have been on Wellington X9622; not listed in Chorley's Volumes 7 and 9.
    HAUSER was 602 Sqn and JOHNSON 175 Sqn but can't find a missing aircraft (Spitfire or Hurricane) for these units on this day.
    Regards,
    Henk.
