Hi Henk
Ballance,24, Brown,20, Hendry,21, and Trelawny,26 are all registered at Cirencester,Gloucestershire. It is within 3 miles of South Cerney, which I think was a Flying Training Unit at the time.It is also not appropriate for any of your likely accidents.
Regards
Dick

Oxford P1952 near South Cerney?

Henk and Dave
The Oxford would fit and explain 3 U/T pilots at the same time.There was a radio Officer,a Civilian, on board in one of Henk's earlier threads when an Anson Nav Trainer hit Goat Fell on Arran, so an RAF w/op on an Oxford to handle comms wouldn't be out of place.

Thanks Dave & Dick. This could be a match. I didn't mention this a/c as a proposed loss because it was not listed in Air Britain Aeromilitaria (Crash Sites in UK during WW2).
Regards,
Henk.

Hello

The Graves Registration Report Forms for all four airmen record that they were with 3 F.T.S.
