    Default F/Lt James Melvin Hilton, VR 1315248/127210

    Hello again,
    Help please wanted to where F/Lt James Melvin Hilton came from. Appears to have enlisted at Oxford in July, 40.
    He was commission on 5-8-42, could have been when he finished his OTU course. Which one?
    He was with 130 sqn in April 1943 as a F/O and along with many members of A Flt transferred to the newly formed 548 sqn in Australia on 1-1-44. In April they received Spitfire VIII, which they operated to August 1945 when he returned to the UK as a F/Lt.
    Any help would be gratefully received.
    Thanks,
    Roy
