    Default F/Lt Wowles - 214 Sq pilot in 1950

    Hi all,

    I found this pilot in a Log Book - it is written clearly but I suppose it might be spelled wrongly as I got no record for such a surname in the LG.
    Any suggestions?

    TIA

    Pavel, Hi
    I think it is almost certainly Vowles, and one of these might be yr man?
