    Hi Harold,

    Using Peter's information here:

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?27-RAF-RAF-OR-Service-Numbers

    it would seem your brother's number was in a block issued 2300000 to 2324999 Feb 1946 Padgate Non ATC

    Regards,

    Dave

    Harold, have you checked the family history sites for marriages and (lets hope not) deaths.

    Send me names and I can search ancestry.com for you.

    Adding to the advice from Dennis above, you also try a site called 192.com

    As the title suggests this is a site which contains, inter alia, published telephone numbers but, even more important in this case, the edited Electorial Roll. If you entered the name required the site will return 'hits' and you then search from there. Much to my surprise, I was able to help somebody quite recently.

    There are of course many caveats about what is covered. However, it's a start in line with the suggestion above.

    Good Luck
