    Thanks Col.

    You're right - Henk had them listed under that date:

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...rmen-25-8-1943

    I'd picked the serials up from here:

    http://www.oldhaltonians.co.uk/pages...memb/ROH/Y.htm

    Maybe someone else has the right details for Younger, unless he died of his injuries 6 months later...?

    Regards

    Simon

    YOu can confirm that Raikes and Hicklin are registered in berwick, Scotland, and as I've said before, you don;t need credits.

    Just enter their names and select a county to search in. Use the seclectable fields.

    Younger does not appear to be in Berwick.

    Younger's name is listed as Killed on Active Service. in different casualty list to Raikes and Hicklin.
