    Default F/Lt Robert Roland Briscoe RAF 228 Squadron

    Hi All,

    F/Lt Robert Rowland Briscoe 42795 RAF. Pilot. 228 Sq.

    Try as I may I just still can`t trace this airman back prior to his commission to A/P/O 23rd Oct 1939.

    Does anyone have any info on him prior to this date.

    Especially his date/place of birth and when he joined the RAF?

    Any help gratefully received.

    Regards
    Dave

    Amazing! That was from 6 years ago, I`d long given up for a reply and was forced to press ahead with the book I was working on. Thanks for the details though,
    I shall endeavour to include them in any future reprint or in the appendices in volume 4. Regards. Dave.
