    Default Wo denys mitchell vr-1338666

    Hello again,
    Could anyone please help me with the DOB for Denys Mitchell and location. His parents were John Bridgeman Mitchell and Helen Mitchell of Plymouth.
    Also his early RAF service please. He was KOAS on 158 SP at Karjulia, Eastern India.
    Best wishes.
