My memory being what it is I cant remember if I've asked this before. The crew of the above aircraft which crashed on 11th June 1942 are all remembered on the Malta Memorial namely:
F/O Jack Pybus RNZAF 401778 P5 C1 Malta Memorial

F/O James Morphett Henderson RAAF 406560 P5 C1 Malta Memorial

P/O David John Whalley RAFVR 128051 P3 C1 Malta Memorial

Sgt Vincent Comer RAFVR 1015558 P3 C2 Malta Memorial

Sgt Raymond George Greenman RAFVR 967527 P3 C2 Malta Memorial

Sgt John Edward Burley RAFVR 943928 P3 C2 Malta Memorial

ACM1 Herbert K McCombie RAFVR 981773 P4 C2 Malta Memorial

Lac Gordon McLeod McNeill RAFVR 980994 P4 C2 Malta Memorial

The exception is P/O R H Lawrence (Name obtained from Australian Archives) CWGC have no record for P/O R H Lawrence but do have a F/O R W Lawrence of 95 Squadron who died on 11th June 1942 remembered on the Alamein Memorial.
Can anyone suggest as to why this airman is singled out?
