We are trying to trace as soon as possible Mrs Jacqueline Anne Purser nee Saunders the daughter of Christopher Arthur Saunders deceased who was a Warrant officer in No 49 Squadron whose aircraft was shot down over Holland on November 8th 1941.  It is believed that she has lived or may still be living in Chalfont St Peter or nearby.  His mother lived in Chalfont St Peter at 44 Hiljon Crescent. Anyone who may know this lady is please asked  to contact Mr Alan Walker 01522 824580. We want to talk to any relative about a new memorial to Warrant Officer Saunders Thank you for your help.

There is a Purser listed under name search CSP in bt.com.  Surprised you didn't try this first.

Thank you for your reply to the message. We had tried it, but unfortunately it is not the right 'Purser'. We understand there is another family with the same name in Chalfont St Peter.

I used to be in the same class as Sandra Purser from Denham. Her Mother would possibly be in that age range. Sadly she is buried in Denham village churchyard, around 4 miles from Chalfont. I will try to get there and check to see the mothers name for you tomorrow.

I would also be interested in your relatives wartime history.

Thank you very much for your reply and for taking so much trouble to look for me and for those researching Warrant Officer Saunders' plane in Holland. This is the culmination of a long search involving various Squadron Association including No 49 Squadron. The lady to whom you have referred may be related to the family of Jacqueline's husband. We are sure Jacqueleine Anne Saunders married and became Purser. The mistake in my message is that it was Jacqueline's mother Frances Evelyn Saunders who lived at 44 Hiljon Crescent Chalfont St Peter. So I am sorry if this was misleading. We have also been informed that there may be a 'Purser' who lives close by Gold Hill Common, but this is not the one who is listed.  Thank you again for the help thus far. I am also trying other local 'avenues'.

Did she have a twin sister?

To Dan Dan Chalfont Snapper

Yes !!! Have we found her (rather them)? Next question is do you want me to provide the name of the twin; if so I can readily do so, as I have the names of the twins, and where they were born.  Please reply if possible this evening. The telephone number for me is above and I would welcome a call from either of them if we are that close.

Many thanks for your help in replying to my enquiry.

Alan, I do believe that we might know someone who knows of Jacqueline’s whereabouts, we phoned this evening and left a message and we are waiting for a reply.

So if you could just bear with me I will let you know ASAP.
