    Thanks AlanW; the registrations at Wigton may have been on the Hudson N7226 of 1 (C)OTU.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hi Henk, not so sure about that, 1(C) OTU lost two Hudsons on this day. The one at Beckfoot and another at Silloth itself, it may be that both locations come under Wigton district.
    Interestingly, i've just found Sgt C.Ring, pilot, and Sgt D.W. Sanderson both killed 13/01/43, both registered Wigton, Ring buried Silloth, may be a connection.

    Hi Ross,
    Could J.W.Sawerson be a typo for D.W. Sanderson, Sawerson not on CWGC.
    Alan.

    Lambert is W A T Lambert, missing one initial there, and he is DOAS in April 8th magazine.

    Hayward is in the same KOAS list as the other two men, Sgt. W. J. Hay ward; but there is a phantom space in the middle of his surname, hence not found on search.
