    Hi Everyone,
    I am researching a Leslie HOGAN who is on the Hawarden WW2 War Memorial, with no clue at all, but I did look at the CWGC and Forces Records and found this man, but he married a girl from Lancaster, which I know can happen if they met when he was training etc. It seems they married in the September quarter of 1943 and he died on the 29th of the same month. I need to find the connection between Hawarden and Lancaster.
    Pilot Officer (Navigator)
    Service Number 158337
    Died 29/09/1943
    Aged 22
    105 Sqdn. Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
    D F M
    Son of Frederic and Edith Hogan; husband of Bessie Hogan, of Lancaster.
    Find a grave states that he died in Air Crash in Norfolk.
    105 Sqdn records on Nat. Archives, gives two lots of records for Sept. 1943, so I don't know which to download, any advice please?
    Squadron Number: 105 Summary of Events: Y | The National Archives
    Squadron Number: 105 Records of Events: Y | The National Archives
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Kindest Regards, Mavis Williams

    Start with record - this is the daily list of work carried out.

    Summary is a monthly one liner of tasks carried out but also had housekeeping of postings

    But if you click the Preview on the left hand side of the TNA Discovery Cat page you can see the contents of both docs - with a watermark.

    He is mentioned in both Record and Summary

    Aah! That's why I couldn't find Frederick HOGAN in in the 1939 Register! Thank you Harkness, I didn't know Frederick had another Christian name. Grateful for all the information. Kindest regards, Mavis

    Hi Mavis. The 1939 Register gave the surname as 'Hoggan'. It threw me for a while!

    Yes me too after I knew they were there because you had found them. Thanks so much. Mavis
