    The GRO List for RAF dead gives all the men on Runnymede as TTU Abbotsinch. I'm sure Ross will have the correct details.

    We briefly mentioned them before but to no conclusion.

    Jenks - age 30 Whitchurch district, Shropshire. Hodnet is listed in this district so L9688 ?

    Wyness - Registered in Sorbie District, Wigtownshire.
    Carling - Age 28 Wensleydale, Yorkshire North Riding - Noting there is no Middle initial listed on the index entry. Only likely Thomas S listed born was so in 1914 in Durham.

    Hi Henk
    Carling,28, registered at Wensleydale, N Yorkshire. Whitehead, on T8200, is registered at Howdenshire which was E Yorkshire at the time, Idon't think there is a connection.
    Jenks,30, registered at Whitchurch but there is no indication of whether it is the one in Shropshire or Hampshire
    Mary Wyness didn,t come up but she came from Scotland and is buried there, may have died there

    The Hamsphire district was abolished in 1932.

    Hi Henk, Jenks was the solo occupant of Oxford L9688 and he was an instructor at Shawbury.

    Cheers, Tom

    Hello

    ACW2 Mary B. WYNESS - 2046417 - the Aberdeen Weekly Journal of July 16th 1942 reported the following:

    WAAF Mary Wyness
    Miss Mary Wyness, a Lumphanan W.A.A.F., was killed in an accident the day after she returned to her unit from leave, when she visited her parents at Foggieley, Corse.
    She joined the W.A.A.F. in March and had been stationed in England until recently, when she was transferred to a Scottish station.
