Thank you Dogzbody and Nick for your replies.
 Nine Elms cemetery is only 3 or 4 miles from Abeele so I was really wondering on the manner of his death, as ground crew. I have found out from The Great War Forum that there are 3 sets of records available for this month from National Archives for 10th Squadron, so I will have a go at those. Many thanks again; I would be happy to share information in his letters and RFC cards, although obviously he was not permitted to write much "info"

John
I note that Henshaw has no entry for Streat (often the case that DOWs get 'lost' in the system), which does make him wonder if he was groundcrew caught in a bombing raid, or similar.
 
I don't have Hobson to hand - does the corresponding date entry note any aircraft involvement or related incident ?

Hello. I am researching the movements of 10th squadron, RFC, prior to the death of my Uncle, Ralph Streat, Airman 1st class, on 18th Nov, 1917. I see from a previous post that the squadron had just moved to Abeele. I have a number of his letters and post cards from the front, but no information as to his job or manner of death. He is buried at Nine Elms Cemetery, Poperinge, Belgium, which I hope to visit soon, but would like to know as much background information as possible before I go. Many thanks for taking the time to read this.
