    Roy, how's this for a theory?

    Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve. GENERAL DUTIES BRANCH. The undermentioned are granted commissions for the duration of hostilities:
    As Pilot Officers on probation.
    22nd May 1941. 741299 (Enlisted shortly after Jan 1937 RAFVR Pilots) Sgt Edward Anthony MOULD Commissioned Plt Off (67599). Knowing how promotions/postings work, I would think it quite likely that he was a Sgt in 74 Sqn, and moved to 85 Sqn on Commissioning?
    22 May 1942 Prom Fg Off
    20 Jan 1943 Killed with 85 Sqn (Mosquito II DD731 Dengie Flats, Essex (RAFWEB), buried Brookwood there may be something behind this?).

    Hello Gerry, Thanks for your BoB input.
    Peter the last flight I have found on him on 74 sqn was on 12-5-41, so could well be his commission date as 12 month on he was promoted to F/O on 22-5-42.
    Thank you gents for your help.
    Roy
