    Phill, Hi,

    If it's the same bloke then:-
    The undermentioned are granted commissions for the duration of hostilities as Pilot Officers on probation on the dates stated: —
    18th Mar. 1940. Reginald Percy BUFTON (78167).

    The undermentioned Pilot Officers on probation are confirmed in their appointments and promoted to the war substantive rank of Flying Officer: — 18th Mar. 1941. Reginald Percy BUFTON (78167)

    MiD 24 Sep 1941 as A/Flt Lt.

    Relinquished 10 Feb 1954 as Flt Lt.

    If he was FRZS in 1918 he might be a bit old to be the same bloke. You need a Bufton Family expert to sort them out!
