    Hi Henk
    Bilton could be a match with AS477, as Brinkworth is in the Chippenham reporting area
    Regards

    Trimm is DOAS in July 8th Fligth magazine. He is given as F/O rank in the magazine.

    DIED ON ACTIVE SERVICE.— A/C.2 A. O'Mara: Fligth 13 aug 42 magazine, faintly scanned page

    KOAS - A/C.l A N. Tracey from Flight magazine Aug 27 1942

    Henk, for most of the men from this date onwards your likely to find them in the Fligth_AS1942-2.pdf file we created. The second half of 1942.

    Andrew N Tracey age 31 Chippenham, Wiltshire Q2

    Dick, which site do you use for your registrations, a search for Tracey in Q2 on ancestry.com does not give a return only because there is a hand amendment on that page and they annoyingly have that ammendment name Toynton as the last name on that page, where as its really Tracy, I.e. Toynton, Tozer, Tracey, Tracy

    Thanks Dennis
    The extra amendments always throw the Ancestry search engine. I usually pick it up but this time I didn't do the full check, year-qtr-initial then a guess at the image no for the letter combination you need.

    Hi Henk
    With Tracey also registered at Chippenham it might connect him to Bilton and Oxford AS477
