    Default Help with Service Record please?

    I have been looking at a copy of an Airman's Service Record and wonder if anyone can help me with a couple of notations thereon.

    Firstly, I have him at 14 ITW in June 1943, but I have seen 14 ITW described as at both Bridlington and St. Leaonards on Sea. Any idea which is correct?

    As an Air Gunner, I would have expected him to have gone to an Air Gunnery School. However, there is a physical space in his Service Record before the next recorded posting which was his leaving 15 OTU on the 3/11/43 and being 1652 CU on the 5/11/43. Is there any way to establish which AGS he attended, how long for, and how long the OTU course lasted?

    My final query is that he was posted missing on 5/1/54 but an annotation of WCNE appears for the 6/1/45. I suspect the NE means non effective but can anyone explain the entry fully?

    As always, I am most appreciative of any help you can offer.

    Regards,

    Kevin Mears

    Peter.

    Thanks for that, it sounds eminently possible. Would you mind if I contact you off board to enlist your meteorological expertise?

    Regards,
