    Default Anyone here got access to Ancestry and can lopock up two RoAC Licenses for me please

    1) Kenric Torlesse Murray - I would like to see what it says about him believed to be Cosa Rican - he was in RAF Reserve, his commision ended just before the start of WW2, he flew with Jersey airways prewar and ended up in Barbados after the war. I strongly believe he fell out of Avro 631 Cadet G-ACHH on 10 Sept 1934 while with Air Services Training Hamble

    2 William Colin Soule - He also fell out of a aircraft at Air Services Training Hamble - in this case on March 6 (or 5) 1934 - he was Canadian - the pilot was August Stefan Hell a Austrian (who aslo qualiifed for a RoAC License)

    These two are part of my pre-war bale outs (though not RAF)

    Many thanks

    Paul

    Kenric T Murray, born 26 Nov 1912 Hampton Court
    Certificate Taken: RAF Pilot
    issued at: Air Service Training, Hamble
    9 Oct 1934

    He arrived in Britol with his mother and siblings in 1921 from Costa Rica.

    And again in 1934 into Plymouth from Costa Rica. Listed as civil engineer.

    and again 1952, 1955 for other destinations.

    And there are I guess about 9 new York arrivals for him in 1947-1957 period. Going to and from England and the Caribian. He had a child in Cost Rica in 1943.
    He also seems to have joined the Post office in 1935 again as a Cent. W less operator.

    RoAC Cards states:

    Cert issued while a student at Air Service Training 17 Mar 1934

    also:
    Arrival in Uk is 1933, enroute to Air Service Training even then.

    Dec 1935, arrives in New York enroute to Canada. Arrival in Halifax later in the month also on Canadian port arrivals.

    Back in january 1936, destination Air Service Training, Hamble

    Seems to have Died 1945

    Signalman
    Service No:B/38505
    Date of Death:27/02/1945

    There is an overseas death cert from Ontario for him, date of birth slightly different in that it states 16 Oct 1912.,

    Thank you Kenric T Murray birth location and fact he came from Cosa Rica confirms him as my 'KT Murry' (according to Irvine) and 'R J Murrey' or 'J Murrey' according to local press!

    If I have a couple of other querys re RoAC Cert (mainly RAF Sgt Pilots who have baled out and MAY have decided to get their Civil Licences) do you mind lopoking them up for me?

    Many thanks

    Paul,

    Probably just a typo, but...

    G-ACHH, was a De Havilland DH60G III Moth Major (c/n.5026), later CR-GAA/CR-LAG (Angola). Your machine possibly, Avro 631 Cadet (c/n.627) G-ACCH, which was one of the Air Service Training fleet (to spares 12.41).

    Paul,

    post up the list and lets set what can be found. You might be as well off taking out a short subscription, 1 month or what ever their smallest bundle is.
