    Hi all,
    W/O Ronald Eustice Wilson, 409624, RAAF, 450 Squadron, KIA 23/02/1944, Trogir, Yugoslavia, Kittyhawk IV FX542.
    Does anybody know the date of his arrival to the squadron? Where did he come from? No.1449 Flight?

    Hi Col,
    Thank you very much for your quick reply regarding R.E.Wilson and the link to the 450 Squadron ORB. Now I know than I am looking for another Wilson – probably for J.R.Wilson Aus.409264, not 409624. I am posting a new thread.

    Best regards
    Mojmír
