    Rich,

    There are two Jenkins on Henk's list.
    Dick was referring to Edgar D JENKINS being regd in Exeter. Although it doesn't explain why your Paul Ralph Emerson JENKINS in not on the Q3 register.

    I tried to find the birth registration on Ancestry of P R E JENKINS, but couldn't. Then I found him on the Malta Family History site under British Forces Baptisms:

    Paul Ralph Emerson JENKINS, the son of Nancy and Ralph Emerson Jenkins, Captain, Hampshire Regiment, born 22nd February 1917, baptised 28th February 1917

    Rich,
    Sorry about misleading over Jenkins.With 2 of the same surname on Henks' list I should have been more precise.
    I had a thought whilst writing this and looked in Qtr1 in 1943 and there is a registration of a Paul R E Jenkins,25, in Howden, E Yorkshire which is right for the accident to the Lysander,although the area actually was renamed Howdenshire. It is a long delay but suggests an investigation of his death to be sure of the cause.It might raise the possibility that it was not necessarily the result of an air accident and needed the intervention of ,say, a Coroner
    Regards
    Dick

    F1180 confirms F/O P R E Jenkins killed as pilot of Lysander L4795.


    It was on detachment doing a Calibration Flight when it struck overhead wires and crashed.
