    Roy Bosworth WILSON (1583830) of 22 SFTS shown in Hart SAAF 410.

    This has been discussed previously but I have looked at it again.

    410 was a Hart, which was SOC in 1944 and Winston Brent states Wilson was killed in Harvard 410, which as stated is a Hart serial.

    However, Harvard EX410 was delivered to the SRAF and as a SOC date of 7 Jun 1946.

    Could the serial have been written without the 'EX' and the year been written as 1946 instead of 1945?

    Charles August Desmond COLLINS (1545213) - "Post Discharge Death. A medically discharged airman at the time of his death had been evacuated to the UK from 25 General Hospital and admitted to RAF Hospital Wroughton pending medical discharge he died of hypertension"

    However, he must have been discharged from Wroughton as his death is registered in South Shields.

    Kenneth Hugh CHRYSTAL (1050177) - I think "Died unscrew hospital" should read "Died in Crewe Hospital"

    Leslie Robert BLACKWELL (1186447) - was serving with 20 SFTS states he died from multiple injuries sustained in an aircraft accident

    Henry William STANLEY (907567) - was serving with 20 SFTS states he died from multiple injuries but the cause is unknown

    I wonder if these two could be involved in the same incident?
