    I take it that you already have 1109394 AC2 H. Sigsworth for this day. He died from a gun shot wound at No.10 B.G.S. Dumfries, reading the ORB it sounded like it was self inflicted though it wasn't stated if it was suicide or an accident while servicing a firearm.

    Hi Henk
    Martin,34, is registered at Greenwich,E London south of the Thames. Batchelor,27, Lacey,20, and Wyatt,22 are registered at Newmarket, Suffolk. Lloyd,20, is registered at King's Lynn in Norfolk. Snell,27, Kenneth A West,20, Victor West,21, and Wyatt,22, are registered at Bury St Edmunds. Thomas Head ,19, is registered at Thorne in S Yorkshire.
    Bury St Edmunds could be Honington and Newmarket could be Mildenhall. Thorne is possibly Lindholme. Greenwich would right for Kidbrooke
    Regards
    Dick

    Sorry Henk
    Wyatt was registered at Newmarket, jumped a line on the list I wrote down. It complicates things that the 2 places are quite close together in Suffolk.
