I'd appreciate any help forum members can give me in locating any recommendation that might exist for the award of the AFC to Acting Squadron Leader Keith Constantine ROBERTS 70817 RAFO. The award was Gazetted on 11th June 1942 in the 2nd Supplement to the Gazette of 5th June - which was the Birthday Honours List - at which time he was serving as a flying instructor with 54OTU at Charterhall. I am assuming that the award was made as one of the normal half-yearly awards.

The NA files AIR2/8891 and AIR2/8968 list awards to flying instructors in 1941 and 1943 respectively but there appears to be no similar file for 1942. Could anyone point me in the direction of a likely file AIR2/8909 or AIR2/8910 perhaps (although these appear to refer to Birthday Honours awards)?

I don't have the opportunity to visit Kew so any help in narrowing the field would be appreciated.

Regards,

David
