    Default 01894(?) Ernest Ronald Henshaw COOMBES

    I have just two small queries on this man that I hope forumites may be able to assist me with, please:

    • I believe his service no. may have been 01894. Is there any way to confirm that?
    • Coombes was posted to 41 Sqn on 11 Jun 24 and to 15 Sqn as a test pilot, at the AAEE, Martlesham Hth, on 15 Dec 26. However, he does not appear in 41 Sqn nominal rolls after Dec 1925, so I was wondering if he was posted elsewhere before 15 Sqn. Is there anyone with a mid-late 1926 edition AFL who might be able to confirm which unit he was with immediately prior to his posting to 15 Sqn, please?

    Thanks
