    Default ATA Third Officer J. PHILIPPE DUCLER DES RAUCHES

    He is in Brief Glory but his country is blank (so it is assumed UK) but I actually believe he was from Mauritius. I was wondering if anyone can come up with what the "J" is - he is my now my only unknown initial up to the 'S's

    Thanks

    The RAF Musueam looked up his file for me

    "I’m afraid his ATA file only gives him as J – he even signed his contract as “J P Ducler des Rauches”. Given that his second name is Philippe, but we have no way of knowing. (his first)"

    HOWEVER!

    I have just found J P Ducler des Rauches on the Air 78 Files at the National Archives service number 1804103 the only outstanding query is that his first name is spelt "Joesph" in the index not Joseph as you would expect so his full name is Joseph/Joesph Philippe Ducler des Rauches. Joesph maybe typo

    If anyone can confirm Joseph/Joesph it would be a bonus!
