    Default Help required for two PoWs

    Hello,
    I'm after the first names of the following two 214 Sqn NCOs who became PoWs during the war:

    J.E.M. Pitchford (746311)
    AC Smith (1092340)

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks for helping

    Phil

    Hi Phil,

    Pitchford - AIR 78 - only his initials J.E.M. there. His No. is OK, too.

    Regards
