    Birth index england and wales has a few Stanley's and one Sidney born 1913 or so. Check out freebmd.org.uk search suing S* Sollitt

    and have you looked at the AIR78 digital microfilm on TNA? Name is not that common.

    Hi Chris, he was commissioned in 1950 and decorated with the AFC in the New Year's Honours list of 1959. Search LG with 1081071.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Default Spitfire MK.IIa P8192

    Success,

    I finished night shift at 8am today (02/06/2012) and went to my proposed search area.
    At 8.20am this morning, I located the crash site of this aircraft.
    Phill, John, Peter, Tom & Dennis,

    1081071 W/O Stanley Sollitt was the pilot.

    Thank you once again for your advice

    Regards

    Chris Davies
