    Default AIR78 airmen names

    Hi all,

    Could anyone with the AIR78 documents help me track down the first names of the following airmen, please? Searching them with the internet speed that I have out in the sticks is nigh on impossible! They are all NCO aircrew from 1942-1944 period.

    W/O R E Brown (748253)
    Sgt W Cullen (1515485)
    Sgt F W R Frost (1320288)
    Sgt F E Fry (129752)
    Sgt A G McGibbon (1367161)
    Sgt W B Meaten (1566821)
    Sgt N L Thackray (1584212)
    Sgt W (William?) S Yates (1295363)

    Cheers,

    Tom

    ...a little correction:
    Frank William Robert FROST

    Nothing about F E FRY. There is M H FRY 1293732. Would it be?

    Thanks Mojmir, really appreciate that! Can I just check, did Meaten not have a first name (other than Bernard)?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Hi Mojmir, I've just checked my files and it seems that Fry is RCAF. Does MacGibbon have the middle name Gardner by any chance?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Hi Mojmir, thanks for the links but I've already been in touch with the owner! He didn't have the chap's first name - His logbook clearly has him as F/Sgt W B Meaten interestingly?

    Cheers,

    Tom
