    We discussed him previously on this thread on the forum:
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?6676-420923-Unaccounted-airmen-23-9-1942

    It woud be a great help to those old threads if we could keep the discussion on the older thread so that questions are answered there.
    The basic outcome of the old thread was that yes, his death is registered in Alyesbury, but his name was printed in the RAF Casualty lists as 'Died on Active Service', This term usually refers to a non aircraft crash death. A death in road accident, drawning or from natural causes, illness for example. The confusing factor here is that the trade of (WOp/Ag) is lsited on CWGC, the recording of trade is normally associated with personel killed in flying accidents

    I think the best answer to this case might be to obtain his death certificate and see what is decribed on there.
    The information required for the death cert shoudl eb at this link:

    Just a suggestion:
    There could have been a connection to the death of LAC Harry F.W. PATENALL - 940767. He was involved in a motor cycling accident returning to Halton Camp and came into collision with some pedestrians near Halton Camp at Wendover, about 22.00 hrs. LAC Patenall died in ambulance on the way to Oxford.

    Henk.
