    Search in the London gazette for the RAF officers for a start.

    Godsell and Scott

    and for the RAF airmen, use the AIR78 free file downloads on the UK National Archives website.

    RCAF airman, strange surname so you should easily get him hopefullu on the Democracy at war newspaper archives database in Canada.

    that seems not to be working at present,

    try the Canada Gazette archives also
