    A - Died on active service:
    LAC James E. GREEN - 642701 - listed as 901 Sqdn;
    S/Ldr Leslie C. HOOKE - 31180 - 107 MU
    AC2 Reginald C. LAND - 1140786 - No unit is listed for him.

    B - Not found in Flight Global:
    P/O James H. JUMP - 118113 - 21 PTC
    S/Ldr John C. LELYTH - 41103 - Thisman does not appear to be listed in the GRO RAF index, unless there is a spelling problem, he is not in the page with LEL... surnames certainly.

    I also could not find the last two men in Flight Archives

    Henk/Dennis,

    Your 41103 S/Ldr John C. LELYTH, is actually - 41103 S/Ldr John Christopher "BLYTH" (Equipment Branch). See: LG Issue 35383, p.7113. GRO War Deaths - 128 MU.

    Dennis, Another one for the CWGC!
