    Default Sgt (W/C) Alistair Forbes Wilson VR-1250815/118050

    Hello again,
    Could anyone please help me with this pilot. Where did he come from and which OTU did he train on before moving to 74 sqn at Biggin Hill in late 40 to early 41. He later flew with 145, 154 sqns and led 30 sqn at Suez on Hunter F6 in 1956.
    Thank you,
    Roy

    He may be! (emphasis on may!)

    A gent born in Bromley District, kent, 1920 and died in Shrewburys district, 1985.

    Not many returns on that name so I'd be confident of that.

    Actually, he is on a family tree on ancestry.com where he is called Wong Cdr so I guess that is him. I'll point the tree owner towards this thread and they can follow up if they are still active on ancestry.com. If you might pop a small post below this about what you are looking for and if you want to contact relatives etc, they might encourage them.

    Hello Dennis and Peter,
    You are stars, sincere thanks, so it looks like he enrolled at Uxbridge.
    Many thanks,
