CWGC Errors[URL]http://www.rafcommands.com/database/wardead/details.php?qnum=110199[/URL] Sgt Alan Doughty Shuckburgh of 603 Squadron RAF had a twin brother P/O John Shirley Shuckburgh of 54 Squadron RAF. There appears to be an anomaly regarding these pilot brothers is that this RAF commands CWGC website shows Alan Doughty Shuckburgh as service number 904834. However, 904834 John Shirley Shuckburgh was promoted pilot office on probation on 15th January 1941, gazetted 24 March the 1941 and subsequently the London Gazette 2nd May 1941 shows Sgt J S Shuckburgh as 904834 promoted pilot office on probation (62251) to correct a misspelt surname. Again an error because future gazette enties show his service number as 62241. Is their an error on CWGC records or were there errors in gazetting John Shirley Shuckburgh? ....Read More.Ademottram on 12th September 2020 03:25:04

The data is based on AIR78 index and I am sure you will find a manual verification of AIR78 will confirm this. ....Read More.Jagan on 14th September 2020 09:31:19
