    Default S/Ldr Flikens? Flukens? - who was CFI of N 54 O.T.U. in FEB/MARCH 1941 ?

    Good night to all members.

    Am looking for the full NAME and RAF number of the CFI of N 54 O.T.U. in February/March 1941 period.

    It seems it was Squadron Leader Flikens or Flukens, but I have not managed to find a match yet on the full name.

    Any help most welcomed.

    Adriano,
    Definitely, I would think, a Name Typo here!
    No 'Fliken(s)' come up on the usual UK BMD sites.
    There were 'Fluken(s)', but they seem to have died out in the late 1800's.
    Now I don't know about pix on this forum, but if you could manage to put a pic of the (presumably) hand-written(?) version of the name on the Forum, then we can have a go at hunting down the owner of it?
    A challenge for the experts!

    I'm with Peter on this - looks like a typo. Maybe F. Lukens..?

    Regards

    Dear Simon and Peter,

    Am unable to attach pictures on that Frum, do know why. However I managed to attach here: http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showth...d=1#post249914

    YES, it could be a Lukens and F. Lukens...but even so, I am unable to find a match and a service number.

    Does anyone here do have the 54 OTU ORB...maybe there we do have the full name of the CFI or Commanding Officer or the Squadron Leaders (supernumerary) attached?

    Humbly yours
    Adriano S. Baumgartner
