    I think McCarthy will be this chap, John, but I would be interested in knowing the dates of his tenure on 273 Sqn:

    McCARTHY, JOHN DUDLEY ‘Mac’, 147196, RAFVR; b Nflk, 25 Mar 1918; arr Buffalo NY, USA, 16 Jul 1941 & to Southern Avtn Sch, Woodward Fld, Camden, SC, USA, d/u 1941-1942; Sgt Plt (918006), d/u; com Prob Plt Off (147196), 26 Apr 1943; Prob Fg Off (WS), 26 Oct 1943; 130 Sqn (Spit Vb), d/u 1944; WIA (circumstances?), 21 May 1944; Flt Lt (WS), 26 Apr 1945; ‘Flg Adjt’, 41 Sqn, 3 Sep 1945; released under ‘Class A’, 4 Jan 1946; d. Redbridge, Esx, Jul 1994

    Thank you all for your input.

    @Steve: I don't think it is the same J.D. McCarthy as the one with 273 Squadron was a F/Sgt in 1945.

    @Mojmir: I don't think it is that A. Lemaire as the one with 273 Squadron was a W/O in 1944 and the other one was commisioned in 1943. So I must have been given the wrong service number.
