    Default 2209976 Sgt Allen Robinson Air Gunner

    The Sgt I work for has recently purchased the medals of this young man. He would like to find out more about him. He thinks that he may have at some point been on 83 Sqn. Does anyone have any information or copies of the 83 Sqn F540s that we can find out more about him?
    Many thanks

    Robinson is not in the CWGC records nor as a POW in Footprints in the Sands of Time. He does not appear in Maton, so no gallantry medals and I could not find him from a quick look in the 83 Sqn History.

    You need the Record of Service!!!!!!!!!!

    2209976 in Block 2200000-2212749 “UK Enlistments – Padgate” from Oct 1942
    Assume he was 18 in Oct 42. Therefore (3 x dots!) Birth around Oct 1924.
    You can have:-

    Allen Robinson
    b. Q1 1925 Reg Oldham 8d 1200 (MMS Greaves)
    b. Q4 1921 Reg N. Bierly 9b 105 (MMS Lodge)
    b. Q2 1921 Reg Barnsley 9c 650 (MMS Hudson)
    There may be more if we push the Birth year back earlier than 1921, but I would bet some of your money on the Q1 1925 Oldham Allen Robinson!
    Need to check Forename(s) against 2209976 Robinson, Allen, in AIR 78 (there is an Allen Leonard Robinson also b. Q1 1925. This one d. Nov 1994 Watford 5361B B36D 109). And, indeed, check Allen/Allan, etc!

    Perhaps need to knock quite loudly on some other ‘woodwork’ to see what falls out (siblings, rellies, progeny)?
