    Hi HENK
    Pyper,21, is registered at Whitchurch,which is the right area for a death at Shawbury.
    Scotney,21, registered at Deben, Suffolk.
    Owen Dick,didn't show on the register but I note he is buried at Perth a few miles from Scone,?T7341
    Neither Ridgewell or Vaughan came up on the register, both are buried in England but could have died in Scotland
    Regards
    Dick

    Hi Henk, Pyper was indeed the solo pilot of Oxford V3689.

    Cheers, Tom

    Dick, Vaughan and Ridgewell, place of death recorded as Kingswell Wood, St Martins, Perthshire and so were were in TM T3741.

    But there are only two places in a TM!
