    Default F/O R V Spencer - 144457

    Hi all - I would be most grateful if anyone could give me information on the above officer.

    He is listed in CWGC as an Air Bomber who died on 4th May 1944, but there are no details of his Squadron etc, my interest is that he is listed on our Church War Memorial and I am curious as to his background.

    Any information would be much appreciated

    Royton, Your man was commissioned from Ldg. Acm. on 29 May 43. That would suggest that he was commissioned at the end of his training. His service number as an Other Rank was 1435929. He was promoted from Plt. Off. (on prob) to Flg. Off. (on prob) war substantive with effect from 29 Nov 43. Source: LG. Regards, Terry
