    Can you be a bit more specific, have you found the officers in the London Gazette, in Flight magazines archives. At least three have fiarly distinctive names you can try in the London Gazette, you can probably find birth references for them at freebmd.org.uk

    To add to Alain's post, W/C Evans, this time with F/L T.R.Carpenter destroyed an FW190 on 7/8 July 1944 whilst F/L Perks, now flying with F/L D.E.Hughes, destroyed a Ju88 on 29/30 Aug. 1944. Howard & Clay downed an HE111 on 28/29 Aug 1944. on 16/17 March 1945 Hughes and Perks destroyed a Ju188 and another of the type on 3 April 1945.
    Howard & Clay claimed three more confirmed kills whilst with BSDU.
    Hope this is of use,
    Bill.
