    Also looking for the aircraft serial of a Blenheim IV of 139 Sqn that may have returned safely to base however one crewmember fatally injured:
    Sgt (WOp/Ag) Alfred E. HARRISON - 641056 - 139 Sqn (Horsham St.Faith, Norfolk) - Flight Global: Died of wounds or injuries received in action.

    Regards and thanks for your help.

    Depending on which Cheadle Bourton's death was register at he could have been in R6400 as Upper Tean close to Cheadle, Staffs.

    Thanks Andy and Al for your reaction. Do hope Andy may confirm it was Cheadle, Staffordshire and we have another one deleted from the long list.

    Still looking for someone who has access to the ORB 139 Sqn.

    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hi Henk
    The Cheadle Registrars Office is the one in Staffordshire. The other Cheadle is not too far away but is on the edge of Manchester and is part of Stockport which has it's own Registrars Office.
    Regards
