    Default Douglas Barton Perry

    Gents
    Does anyone have any details of service of Douglas Barton Perry? He was a pilot with 79 and 607 Sqns in Burma, scoring few victories, and commissioned during the service. I am looking for anything more detailed than that.
    TIA

    Franek,
    He also pitches up on http://warsailors.com/forum/read.php?1,64648,64661 buying the tug Venture at some time in 1948 (if it’s the same bloke?). Can’t get his Relinquishment/Resignation to come up on the LG.
