    Default Albert Charles Hartnoll Dennis, DFC, DFM (RAFVR 117993)

    Good night to all,

    Am looking for pictures of Flight Lieutenant Albert Charles Hartnoll Dennis, D.F.C., D.F.M. (RAFVR 117993), a former Sergeant pilot with 83 Squadron who went to complete a second tour with 692 Squadron, on Mosquitos.

    Have tried to find some relatives of this particular airman, but got no joy. Any contacts would be most welcomed too.

    Most sincerely yours,
    Adriano Silva Baumgartner ASV 00.344 (aircraft accident investigator by CENIPA)

    Adriano.
    F/Lt DENNIS flew upwards of 50 Pathfinder ops dropping single 4,000lb bombs from his 692 Squadron Mosquito.
    Can I ask if you managed to obtain an image of him at all or maybe obtained his DFC recommendation which would have been for these Pathfinder ops.
    I am currently looking at his Navigator who flew with him but appears to have been overlooked for any award despite navigating Dennis on all of his ops.
    Any help will be much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Ancestry.co.uk has his Royal Aero Club Aviator's Certificate, and there's a portrait photo on the next card. I'm pretty sure the photo is him, but it's not obvious if the photos are before or after the particular index cards in the film strip.

    He took the Certificate on February 22nd 1939 at Weston Aero Club.

    Regards

    Simon
