    Default POW ETO Google-sheet Missing data

    Hello All,
    There are, currently, 14072 Rows of data on the ETO POW experimental Google-sheet. The last 5-digit a/c s/n is Z9824. This is at Row 9171. I am quietly working my way down the (alphanumeric sorted s/n) sheet allocating “Type” of mission termination data. I am currently at Row 5063 – so, just over half-way! There is a significant number of errors in the original data (dictation/typo/poor OCR/and plain wrong!). I can correct many of these. There are a number of other Members working – from time to time – on this. Their help is tremendous! Jagan keeps an eye on the Google-sheet.
    There are some items of missing data (usually Forenames and/or Service Numbers) that my expertise/ability will not allow me to discover/correct! Thus my posting small batches of these ‘unknowns’ in the hope that, particularly, the Unit historians/researchers who may have access to sites/books/docs which I don’t have can produce the missing answers!
    The next lot is below! We are grateful for any corrections!

    Halifax - Hurricane N2422 - the Sussex Agricultural Express of October 4th 1940 reported the following:

    MAYFIELD
    Pilot Officer Noel Hallifax [note spelling], R.A.F., son of Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Hallifax, Fakes Burrow, The Warren, Mayfield, who was reported missing several weeks ago, is now reported a prisoner of war.


    The National Probate Calendar has Noel Dan Hallifax, of the same address, died November 8th 1946 at R.A.F. Leeming. His death was reported in the Sevenoaks Chronicle, 'the reult of an aircraft accident near Leeming.'
