    Default 4 AACU AC1 Finn EJB

    I have visited the grave at Changi but have no details as to how or where he died (3/1/45) must have been PoW. There are one or two refs to 4AACU throughout the forums. He is recorded on Petersfield, Hants War Memorial and I have compiled a book with his family details - any further info would be a bonus!

    Do you have a copy of his service record?.

    This should provide more information about his training and when he left the UK / arrived in the Far East.

    Regards

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]
