    Default Searching for RAF pilots

    Good morning everyone ! I do not know if I am posting in the right place as I am new to this forum.
    I'm looking for information on two RAF pilots. This is the only information I have :

    J.Morris 1950

    R.Bacon 1206708

    Can anyone help ? :)

    I've just had a quick look at The RAF Retired List for 1982. There is no R Bacon shown and whilst there are no J Morris shown, there are several J Morris with other initials. Of course the list to which I refer relates only to people who had held a permanent commission in the RAF and who were still alive in 1982.

    Although you say the names are all you have, in what context do their names appear to you. Is this an event, a list of something, perhaps a location. Whilst Bacon is relatively uncommon a name, Morris is very common.

    Thank you very much for your answers.

    Oldduffer - I have a book entitled The Complete flying Course, A manual of flying tuition, and it's signed by J.Morris and R.Bacon. I was assuming that they were pilots.

    In that case 1950 is probably the year R.Bacon 1206708 trained/qualified as pilot with his instructor J Morris
