    Default Forrest, J W - 15 Sqd SAAF - Died 12/12/43 - Alamein Memorial

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to thank everyone who helped me in previous threads, much appreciated.

    As anyone any information concerning the above airman? I know it concerns a South African Airforce casualty but the person in question was born to parents in Newport, Gwent, then Monmouthshire.

    And if possible could someone provide the full name of this man as I only have the initials of his forenames. All information will be gratefully received.

    Thanks.
