    Default Sgt/FO John Joseph Parker

    Hello again,
    Could anyone please help me regarding Sgt/FO John Joseph Parker VR1234538/187906. I believe he enlisted at Cardington in April, 1940.
    As a Sgt he joined 130 sqn at Drem from 1-4-43 flying Spitfires, he stayed with them until 26-9-43.
    I would like to know where he came from and any postings during training. To cloud the waters I have found a Sgt Parker who from 20-7-41 flew with 118 sqn at Ibsley, is this the same JJ Parker?
    Thank you,
    Roy

    Hi Peter,
    You have done it again, sincere thanks.
    So John came from Penrith which will help the project.
