    Hello

    CROTHERS, Basil - F/S(Pilot) - 1623176
    GUY, Leslie - F/S(Pilot) - 1522069 - the G.R.R. Forms on their respective CWGC entries have their unit as 15 (P) A.F.U. - possibly Oxford BG260?

    SARGINSON, Ronald - LAC - 1477695 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at The Sanatorium, Meathop, Westmoreland.

    Regards

    Simon
