    Default Sgt CRAVEN 603 Squadron 1943

    Hi guys

    I would be grateful if someone could advise whether Sgt CRAVEN of 603 Squadron was awarded a DFM in 1943.
    Any information would be appreciated.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Hello Brian

    Several CRAVENs mentioned in "Honour the Air Forces" by Michael MATON, only two DFM :

    Sgt David CRAVEN, 755391, No. 15 Squadron, LG 15/6/43
    Sgt George Thomas CRAVEN, 1395109, No. 47 Squadron, LG 10/12/43 (received the DFC in 1945).

    So no CRAVEN of 603 mentioned in the book. Perhaps a confusion with the two above ?

    Regards

    Joss

    My 'man' is obviously Sgt George Craven of 47 Squadron.

    Great stuff!
