    Hi Henk
    Deans,19, McLean,37, and Sawney,22, are all registered at Aldershot, Hampshire which may connect them to a specific incident
    Thripp,23, registered at Sheffield,W Yorkshire
    You have Albert Martin on 612 Sqn and based in N Scotland, but I found an Albert Martin,22(same age as CWGC),registered at Durham S E. CWGC has him as buried in Durham and his N-o-K are also from the Durham area so he may have died on leave
    Regards
    Dick

    Hello

    C2 John W. DEANS - 1790065
    AC1 Alexander McLEAN - 1474857 and
    AC2 Raymond R.F. SAWNEY - 1183061- no units on the Graves Registration Report Forms for Deans or Sawney, but McLean is listed as being with the R.A.E.

    A family tree on ancestry.co.uk records that McLean was killed in a truck accident after disembarking an aircraft, said to be caused by a drunk driver, resulting in the truck overturning.

    Regards

    Simon
