    Default S/L Anthony Clarabut Gude Wenman VR-745589/85270

    Hello again,
    Could someone please help with where this Spitfire pilot came from and his DOB. I have tried freebdm with no results. Also when he died after the war. He was awarded the AFC on 13-6-46 while with 1 APS, at Fairwood Common. He had earlier flown with 249, 145, 243, 154 sqns.
    Thanks, Roy

    Hello Roy

    If you type the following into Google, you will get 6 pdf download and 2 other results, for you to download and browse to see if there are any clues ...

    "London gazette" wenman 85270

    Always downloading (free), very, very occasionly you get a birth date and a bit of info, besides the usual Name and S/Number.

    Well spotted Peter and the Gazette of 15 October 1940 also spells Anthony without the 'h'

    "745589 Antony Clarabut Gude WENMAN (85270)."

    The England and Wales Deaths Index on ancestry.co.uk gives his D.o.B as July 21st 1914, and as Peter says the birth was registered in Hendon, Middlesex.

    Regards
