    Gents,

    Looking for a photograph of the following pilots, I have tried the NA. Kew, IWM to no avail.

    Squadron Leader David Smith DFC DFM 127843 RAFVR
    Squadron Leader Frederick John Austin DFC 40168 RAFVR
    Flight Lieutenant William John Ralph DFC 1318949 RAFVR

    TIA

    Hi Steve,

    no luck, only Squadron Leader David Smith DFC DFM 127843 RAFVR possibly should be on this photo according to the caption

    Hi Steve,

    Can't help with photos, but the service number of David SMITH DFC DFM RAFVR was 127802. 127843 was allocated to Alexander CAMERON DFM RAFVR.

    As you can see, someone has already repeated the number without checking.
