    Hello

    BRIGHTWELL, Norman Joseph - Sgt (Pilot) - possibly killed whilst flying in Typhoon IB, JR516 of No 3 TEU - the G.R.R. Form confirms his unit as 3 T.E.U.

    COLLINS, John Garfield - F/L - 72631 - his G.R.R. From lists his unit as "100 A.D.C." - does anyone know what that means?

    Regards

    Simon
