    Default AC2 J W Compton - Battle of Britain Clasp

    HI...first post on here although I have looked on here previously !

    Whilst searching for something else - I came across reference to AC2 John W Compton 1157050 (25 sqn) being awarded the BoB clasp !?

    I am assuming he was either a radar op/mechanic helping 25 sqn on AI equipped Blenheims or perhaps an Air Gunner - but all the early war A/G's I have seen reference to have been at least LAC's...
    AC2 seems a very low rank to have a BoB clasp although I know that there were a couple of 'Erk' DFM's.

    Any help most appreciated - I am very intrigued !
