    Alain, if you Google "139 squadron" crowley, it comes up with this link to download a Word file from the Blenheim Society which has brief details of an article from their journal, issue 65, November 2009, in which it records that an LAC Crowley was wounded on Blenheim N6225 on a raid on Maastricht on May 12th 1940.

    Regards

    Alain, Hi,
    I have a Charles Hugh Crowley b. 31 Mar 1919 (Reg not found). d. Q1 1979 (Reg Trowbridge Vol 23 Page 2809).
    Your man’s s/n (550926) is in the block 550000-558000 – Boy Entrants – Allocated start Oct 1925. Boy Entrants earliest Enlistment was 15 yrs of age – so there is a bit of a time problem. It would be 1934 before he was old enough to Enlist - but it might just fit?
    Best I can do!
