    AC2 N V Gregson is DOAS Sep 9th magazine, scanned as A/C.2 N. V. Gregsoti

    There is a Sgt E J Ashton KOAS in the August 5th magazine, the CWGC do not have such a name listed. This might be Ashton we are looking for. The trade of Pilot listed would to me suggest KOAS.

    Can't find the others.

    Sgt (Pilot) James ASHTON - 1392315 is listed as being buried in Cheltenham and his parents lived in Golders Green in Middlesex. Sgt. Ashton is not recorded in the Scottish Statutory records.

    Cross over of threads, regarding AShton:

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?p=53600&posted=1#post53600

    Eric James Ashton's death is registered at Chipping Norton, Oxon

    A lot of confusion regarding his name. Likely for the Oxford ED156.

    Yes Dennis, I followed the discussion and do believe the James ASHTON I was looking for may have been on the Oxford ED156.

    Hi Phil
