    Default F/O David Joseph Howe, RCAF (Canada)

    Hello,
    I am sorry for mistakenly posting this today on another thread.
    Could anyone help me please, Sgt DJ Howe RCAF R74045 flew with 457, 185, 605 and 112 sqns as a F/Sgt and W/O2.
    Where was he serving in 1944 please.
    He was commissioned, what was his Officer Service number and in 1945 flew with 83 GSU at Dunsfold.
    Can anyone tell me when he returned to Canada.
    Roy

    Hello Roy,
    I was recently made aware of your request for my father's (D.J. Howe) information, which was subsequently provided by Hugh.
    Let me know if you need more information,
    cheers,
    G. Howe (RCAF, retired)

    Hello Gerald,
    Thanks for contacting me regarding your late father. I have some queries of some of his postings.
    Do you have a date when he joined 3 EFTS at London, Ontario
    Where did he disembark from Canada on 23-6-41. What dates was he at 3 PRC, Bournemouth. I believe he was posted to 57 OTU, Hawarden on Spitfire 1a, when was this date in July, 41 and when was this course completed. Do you have this course number please.
    Thank you,
    Roy

    Hello Roy,
    thanks for your quick response. I've been tied up working on my own aircraft out at the hangar, so perhaps we can communicate via my email (please see my profile) which would be more effective and timely.
    Cheers,
    G. Howe
