Assuming the RAF NSA Number of 2340000 was actually issued then Cranwell should know who he was. Whether they will tell you his name is another matter! If they won't then you might try an FOI request as a "special case". If that fails then you might find something at TNA in the archives of the Ministry of Labour and National Service. It was they who sent the plain brown OHMS letter that called you up, and told you which location to go to for your medical. How they determined which bit of the Services you ended up in I don't know. In my case I was already a Scientific Assistant in Air Ministry. There was a clause in the National Service Act 1948 covering folk (like me and others) who had existing qualifications. At all interviews, medicals, Trade Selections, I waved this reference - else I might have ended up for 2 yrs as an Assistant Bog Wallah. One of the guys on my NS intake had just failed his Finals to be a Doc at Barts Hospital. His Call Up papers arrived in the same delivery as his Failure Notice. They wouldn't even make him a Sick Bay Attendant. He ended up as a cook - I met him in the cookhouse at El Adem 6 months after Square Bashing. I was led to believe that this sort of thing was not an isolated case. I have other instances.
