    We discussed many of these personnel in this thread:
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...-43-Chippenham
    Our WAAF Hilda is victim of another GRO index typo

    Magglestone Hilda 25 Wrexham 11b 314
    And she is listed as Died on Active Service (DOAS).
    Her probate entry says she died at Borras Bieston, Wrexham, Denbighsire

    J E Argent is DOAS
    Glassman I cannot find in the Casualty Lists

    D B Thomson appears in the DOAS lists No. 424
    E J Brench and F Martin are DOAS in CasCom 331

    I cannot find Williams in Flight or Aeroplane. As Martin is listed, I wouldn't connect the two in a plane crash but then again?
