P/O Kenneth William Pawson 112442Still plugging away at my local war dead. P/O Kenneth William Pawson 112442 I've been informed by family that he's a relative, but not close enough for me to be able to get this service records. Besides the obvious that I've managed to get from the CWGC I don't have much. He was supposedly an instructor for 8 months prior to beginning active service. If anyone can give me any extra info on that it'd be great. Also I have annecdotal evidence that his aircraft, possibly a Spitfire Vb flying from Luqa, was shot down in combat with a Me 109. Anything anyone can do to confirm or deny this would be greatly appreciated. ....Read More.John Moore on 9th June 2010 12:08:10
