I'm trying to fill a few gaps I have in this man's career, and hope someone may be able to help, please.

  • Following a three-year tenure with 41 Sqn, which ended in July 39, MacDonald became a flying instructor with CFS, but I am seeking the date he commenced with the unit
  • Following his tenure with CFS, he was posted to a similar role with 8 FTS, Montrose, later in 1939, but I am seeking the date
  • He was OC 213 Sqn, 2 Sep 40-14 Nov 41, but I am having difficulty finding exact dates for his subsequent postings, which included OC 241 Wg, OC 251 Wg, Staff AHQ Levant, and OC 283 Wg, Balkan Air Force (ca Jun 44-May 45)
  • Postings wanting, May 45-Feb 54 (except Stn Cdr, RAF West Malling, 26 Jan-2 Feb 48)
  • OC, RAF Sylt, 2 TAF, date? Feb 54
  • Admin Staff Duties, HQ 11 Grp, date? Dec 56
  • Lastly, can anyone name the location of his death, in Surrey I believe, on 29 Feb 96?

Any assistance with the above would be appreciated

Thanks
Steve
