    Default Corporal 529742 Norman Bert Jones Alexander, 30 Squadron

    I'm trying to find out where and when Corporal 529742 Norman Bert Jones Alexander enlisted. If a photo of him was available, that would be ideal.
    He was born first quarter 1918 Gower, Glamorganshire and died 31/05/1941 (One of seventeen killed when the Germans finally overwhelmed the defenders around Maleme Airfield, Crete, Greece).

    Son of The Late Bert and Ivy Elizabeth Alexander of 6 Highlands Road, Fareham, Hampshire

    Any help very much appreciated!

    HTSCF,Hi,
    My program doesn't work for this one! If his b. was Reg Q1 1918, then he would be 18 in Q1 1936. He seems to have Enlisted as a Civilian - "off the streets" - and been allocated 529742 in the Block 505001-549999 between 1 Oct 1925 and 30 Apr 1938 (although this latter date is imputed from other evidence).
    Sri can't be of more help.

    All things being equal, his service number indicates a Feb 1936 enlistment.
    In fond memory of Corporal James Oakland AGC (RMP), killed in action in Afghanistan on 22 October 2009. Exemplo Ducemus.
