    Default Sqn Ldr J. H. DAY DFC 139 Sqdn RAF

    Hello
    looking for information on a S/Ldr J.H. DAY DFC.

    Does anyone know the first name and service number of RAF navigator, was unable to find them in the www.thegazette.co.uk.

    Act. Sqn. Ldr. J. H. DAY D.F.C. RAFVR No. 139 Squadron RAF
    On the last sortie of his first tour in 1941 Sqn. Ldr. DAY lost a leg as a result of enemy action. Undaunted by 'this physical ban dkap, he has completed. many more sorties against the enemy since the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross. Throughout, he has displayed exceptional ability as a navigator. He has at all times set an inspiring example by
    his courage and devotion to duty.

    Pavel,
    I had not cursed the LG for some time. It rewarded me with:-
    1059500 [Cardington/Padgate Sep 1939] John Hemsworth DAY (102603).
