    Biltcliffe is a DOAS, CasCom 321
    Noakes is DOAS in CaSCom 323
    Shepherd and Patterson DOAS in CAS Com 324,
    Cannot find Foale in the 1943 magazines or early 1944 for now.

    Tuxworth also cannot be found.

    An extra little tool folks to speed things along.

    At this link where I keep the consolidated Flight Service Aviation pages.
    http://skynet.ie/~dan/war/flightsa/

    I have transcribed the DIED ON ACTIVE SERVICE names from the Dec 1943 magazines to end of June 1944.

    The format of names is as per the magazines so if when searching, search for A. B. Surname, i.e. the initials have full stops after them.

    I also copied across all the WAAF names from that seven months.
    The new file is at this link:

    http://skynet.ie/~dan/war/flightsa/1944-1%20DOAStranscription.pdf

    Who knows, I may add the KOAS names at some stage.
