GpCpt J.M. Glaisher DFC DoD 19/10/1945John Glaisher is remembered on the war memorial of my local church. I volunteered a little while ago to try an find out something of the 'background' of the people named on the memorial. I know something of John's WW1 service [NA medal cards], the citation for his DFC [luckily his observer was Canadian so quite easy to find on-line!] and a little of his postings in the 30's [from the London Gazette and Flight magazine - nice picture of him with 10 Squadron.] He died in what would appear to be a ferry flight from Algeria in a 144MU liberator [BZ928 - thank you DoRIS]. My question is - what did he do during the war? He was Sqn Ldr at No. 1 Stores unit in '35, promoted in '38 and again in '41. As a relatively senior [rank and age, he was 51 when he died] man I thought he might be identifiable by someone. [I know of no relatives so service records are off limits] Thank you in advance for any help [excellent site - discovered by accident yesterday!] ....Read More.Craigside_Pete on 2nd September 2008 03:37:18
