    Default F/O Jack Arthur Westcott, RAFVR, 927420/198687

    Hello everyone,
    Could anyone please help me with this Hurricane pilot.
    Trained at 53 OTU in March/April, 41. poted to 242 sqn then to Malta with 185 sqn until March,42.
    He then moved to 71 OTU and onto Aden Battle Flt at Khormaksar. This was disbanded at the end of 1942.
    That is as much as I can find on him. Does anyone know where he came from and DOB please.
    Some of the pilots of the Aden Defence Flt moved to 74 sqn, did Jack move to there?
    Many thanks and a Happy new Year,
    Roy

    Meteorology is a science; good meteorology is an art!
    We might not know - but we might know who does!

    Hello Peter,
    That was quick, thank you for your prompt reply.
    I suspected he came from the London area as he enlisted ar Uxbridge. Thank you for his birth data.

    I am the Daughter of Jack Arthur Westcott who served in Malta and who matches the NCO and Commissioned service numbers you mention. From our records Jack went on to serve in 73rd OTU in the Middle East

    It would be great to exchange information, please feel free to contact me.
