    Default 430524 - Unaccounted airmen - 24-5-1943

    What were the places of death registration for:
    LAC William H. JAMES - 1195564;
    Cpl James K.N. MUNRO - 874674 - age 43, and
    Sgt Charles H. ROBERTS - 1554646,
    who all died on active service.

    Also looking for info death (and death registration) of Gunner Jack GRIFFITHS - 1152205 - age 29 - Royal Artillery attd 652 AOP Sqn (Methven, Perthshire). Can't find the loss of an Auster aircraft on/around this date.

    Regards and thanks for your help.

    LAC William H. JAMES - 1195564; there are six listed in EngWal index, all are high ages except for age 36 in Newwark district, Notts. He is buried of course in Newark upon trent.

    Cpl James K.N. MUNRO - 874674 - age 43, Northumberland South district.

    Sgt Charles H. ROBERTS - 1554646, all the names in EngWals are too old compared to CWGC, I don;t seem to see him in Scotland either tho. Douglas might be able to find him better as he has credits in the system.

    There is no evidence of Sgt Charles Holt ROBERTS - 1554646 age 27 in the Scottish Statutory records. He was cremated at Edinburgh Warriston Crematorium.
