    The subject of citations for Mentions in Despatches has been much bandied about on this site (see http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...Citation/page2 as an example) but the fact is that most MiD recommendations were not kept by TPTB (The Powers That Be).

    He's been mentioned on here previously, with regard to his DFM citation:

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...-George-Robson

    He was from the Benwell area of Newcastle, is that right Fraser? There's a load of stuff on ancestry.co.uk, but it's all privately listed.

    Regards

    Simon
