    Default First names RNZAF aircrew, various units

    Dear all,

    I'm looking for the first names of underneath RNZAF aircrew. I've already checked the names in For Your Tomorrow of Errol Martyn and the online Auckland cenotaph, both to no avail. This inicates that they survived the war.

    Sgt H. J. V. Atkins, NZ401430, rear gunner 150 Sqdn
    F/Sgt H. R. Durrant, NZ425652, navigator/bomb aimer 180 Sqdn
    Sgt S. N. Etridge, NZ422697, rear gunner 149 Sqdn
    F/Sgt E. S. Harrison, NZ422702, wireless operator 180 Sqdn
    F/O R. J. Hetherington, NZ?????, pilot 33 Squadron
    P/O G. R. L. Heywood, NZ40622, pilot 75 Sqdn
    F/O D. J. Hibbs, NZ415694, navigator 75 Sqdn
    P/O E. I. Houghton, NZ402187, pilot 408 Sqdn
    F/Sgt T. S. Kelly, NZ415766, navigator/bomb aimer 180 Sqdn
    Sgt B. D. Kinvig, NZ39863, observer 75 Sqdn
    P/O J. M. McCarrison, NZ414645, pilot 254 Sqdn
    P/O I. R. McKenzie, NZ426335, bomb aimer 75 Sqdn
    Sgt E. J. C. McMahon, NZ39868, rear gunner 75 Sqdn
    Sgt D. G. Price, NZ401777, pilot 57 Sqdn
    Sgt R. D. Riley, NZ413479, pilot 485 Sqdn
    Sgt T. E. Schofield, NZ391387, wireless operator 149 Sqdn
    P/O B. M. Sheppard, NZ39977, rear gunner 214 Sqdn
    Sgt D. S. P. Smith, NZ41948 , pilot 88 Sqdn
    Sgt M. G. Sutherland, NZ413506, pilot 485 Sqdn

    Hopefully someone has some of the above first names on file.

    Thanks in advance for your effort,
