    Default AVM 'Paddy' Crisham

    Hi,

    Could anyone tell me the full name of Air Vice Marshall 'Paddy' Crisham; the only name I could google was AVM William J. Crisham CB, CBE. Could this be the same man?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Russ

    Thanks Malcolm,

    Yes I saw AVM W. J. Crishams biography but I cannot find anywhere which attributes the nickname 'Paddy' to AVM W. J. Crisham.

    Cheers,

    Russ

    Only one AVM Crisham in the RAF and it transpired he was born and educated in Ireland,so that's probably the origin of 'Pady'
