    As a start point for you:

    Excluding D Vincent and Douglas (2nd Forename) Vincent, there are three Douglas Vincent in AIR78

    587570
    1252222
    5018814

    I will see what Google brings up and get back to you

    Regards

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]

    Nick,

    Not much to start with.
    There are 2 Douglas (no middle name) Vincents in E&W from 1910-1920:
    Q4 1913 Vincent, Douglas, MMS Field, Reg Chertsey 2a 84
    Q4 1918 Vincent, Douglas, MMS Vincent, Reg Redruth 5c 224 (Prob died in infancy - note MMS!)

    Somebody might have a Service Number.

    1252222 (UK various Apr/May 1940) looking the best bet so far, but nothing in the LG.
    587570 (a/c apprentices Aug 1944)
    5018814 (NSA well post-WW2)
