    Hello all, is anyone able to confirm this guys service number and any unformation on him? First names etc.

    Hi Tom

    John McGale shot down two V-1 flying bombs on the night of 24/25 June 1944 while flying with 418 (RCAF) Squadron. I'm sure Hugh Halliday will provide additional information.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Assuming a dental appointment tomorrow morning is not too excrutiating, I should be able to respond tomorrow afternoon or evening.

    Cheers, Tom
