    Hi folks
    Does anyone have any info on the award of the BEM to this Airman. I think he may have been stationed at 34 EFTS in Canada at the time of the award. I also believe the medal was awarded in Jan 1945
    Thanks for any gen you can give me.
    Regards Alastair Cameron

    There is a family connection here and I'm wondering ,does anyone out there know if Alastair is still a forum member here or might able to provide me with some contact details ?? I believe he has expertise in collecting militaria and subsequent research and may have been living in the Carnforth area at the time of his original post.
