    ROBSON, Robert William 49208 - he is listed as having died 'on war service' in the National Probate Calendar, on ancestry.co.uk. The CWGC has his age as 26, and there's a Robert W Robson of that age whose death is registered Northumberland North First, which would tie in with KH664.

    However, wasn't that service number 49208 allocated in Aug-Nov 1916?

    Or is it a non-RAF service number?

    Regards
