    Default S/L GC Banner-Lover 40283

    Morning,

    Does anyone know a bit more about the military career of the abovementioned pilot? He led the 504 between March and October 1944, but out of that, seems that little is known about him and his previous appointments.

    Thanks

    Phil

    40283 in the LG gives a dozen hits AFLs and ORBs might provide a lot more?
