Hi Henk
Barber,32, registered at Islington, N London
Jacobsen(first name Maurice on the register),27, registered at Willesden, Middlesex,part of W London
Schofield,29, registered at Hammersmith, S W London.
with all 3 registered in what is now Greater London you might find a tie-in to Air Raids
The one you already have, Whittam, is registered at Brackley, Northamptonshire the southern part of the county
