    Default Forename of Flt Lt N. H. Trask RCAF of 402 Sqn?

    Is someone able to provide me the forename of Flt Lt N. H. Trask RCAF who ran out of fuel in Spit Vb, BM298, and crash-landed at Kenley, injuring himself, on 17 May 1942, please?

    Thanks

    Could he be Noel Brown Trask J15001,

    could the H be a letter B? My search of the Canada Gazette doesn't point to him being a Fl/Lt at the time but that things hopeless for searching.

    Brown and Lavigne, in their book CANADIAN WING COMMANDERS record Trask force-landing out of gas 15 miles southeast of Kenley. He is referred to as 'Brownie', so Dennis' suggestion of Noel Brown Trask sounds likely.
