    Default Squadron Leader W. J. MERRICK, M.B.E. (149017)

    Hello,

    After some good information and leads, I was able to obtain the War Diary for the 14th Personnel Transit Centre, and it is very interesting.

    I have seen that some of the documents were signed by its Commanding Officer, Flying Officer, later Squadron Leader W. J. MERRICK, M.B.E. (149017).

    Is there anybody who can give me some more information about this officer, maybe even a picture?

    Thank you, you guys are great!

    Niko.

    Hi

    The designation of the unit should be No 14 Personnel Transit CENTRE (not Command)

    My mistake, we had the wrong description for a very long time.

    Hello Niko,

    Your mention on Merrick's MBE(M), points up an interesting error in the London Gazette. The LG lists his service number as 109011, which is, in fact, the service number of - 1500878 George Ernest ROCHESTER (109011). Merrick's service number was 149017, as quoted by you.
