    There is a James Orville BROOMFIELD reported buried in Stavely, Alberta, date of death 16 June 1970.

    P/O Wilfred DINGLEY J/19107, 424 Squadron, received a DFC according to the London Gazette, 21 April 1944. There ia Wilfred Dingly that authored several technical papers on mining and smelting in the 1960s, don't know if it is the same man.

    F/L Vincent Roy GLOVER J/14713 was discussed before on the Forum, see http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3191

    Found a Joseph C. KOSID, age 88, living in California, but the web site wants money for more information http://www.fullnamedirectory.com/page180056.html

    No luck with the other Canadians, but geneology is not my speciality.

    Hi Bill,

    Many thanks for that Bill, it does fill in some of the gaps.

    Cheers,

    John.
