    Default Pilot Officer J L Scott, 99 Squadron

    'Footprints on the Sands of Time' gives the following information: Scott J L, P/O, 99 Squadron, A/C: Wellington P9275, 25.07.1940, target: NW Germany, Camps: L1/L3, POW No: 272. I have also seen what it has in 'The Other Few'.

    To enable me to find more about Pilot Officer Scott it would help me if I had his service number and forenames. Can anyone help with this?

    Use the PoW list on this site to find service number

    http://www.rafcommands.com/Air%20Force%20PoWs/RAF%20POWs%20Index.html

    Then either Online London Gazette or Air Force List (free download location given in the Research section of this forum) to find first names.
