    Default Sqn Ldr James Strachan Farquharson MiD

    Can anyone who knows about these things advise as to the time of year that Sqn Ldr James Strachan Farquharson RAFVR (Met Branch) was Mentioned in Despatches during 1944, please? I regret I don't have his service number, but he was probably commissioned in September or October 1939.

    TIA

    My thanks for the quick response, Ross. Apologies for giving the wrong year, I took that from his obituary - should have known better.
