    Default Wing Commander William Gordon Oldbury DFC 37708 RAFO

    Hi all,

    Hoping for more luck trying to establish the posting movements of the above officer between 1938 and 1943. I have drawn a complete blank, I am wondering if he was instructing in Canada.

    Any pointers very much appreciated.

    Regards

    Hi Steve,

    Checked the Air Force List March 1938 :-

    He is serving with 38 Sqn Marham from 10.1.1937 listed as Pilot Officer 27-1-1937 Strength 1 W/C, 2 S/L, 3 F/O, 14 P/O, 2 A/P/O, 11 Airman Pilots
    Aircraft Heyford III and Hendon II

    Air Force List for April 1939 lists him as Flying Officer 27.7.1938 !
