    Default F/L Peter Henry Lillywhite, VR-905245/116828

    Hello again,
    I wonder if anyone could please help on his DOB and location, later lived in the Portsmouth area. He enlisted in the VR at Uxbridge, Flew with 242s in the UK then went to Malta to join 185s..He did a tour then posted back to UK after being sick listed.
    Was with 61 OTU as a F/I, then onto 229s in 1944. Then went to 12 Grp HQ in Nov 1944.
    Any info on his schooling and did he work before enlisting and where did he trained before joining 242 sqn.
    Any leads would be great.
    With thanks Roy

    The ancestry.co.uk site has a Royal Aero Club Aviator's Certificate, number 17615, for a Peter Henry Lillywhite, dated April 8th 1939 at Portsmouth Aero Club, taken in a D.H.60X Cirrus II. His profession is listed as student (agriculture).

    His d.o.b. is July 14th 1919, and place of birth Bentley. His address is Bury Court, Bentley, Farnham, Surrey. Ties in with Peter's possible.

    Regards

    Simon
