    Default Flight Lieutenant, Charles Gerard McGlone (172137)

    Hi, can anyone help? looking for information on

    Charles Gerard McGlone (172137), Flight Lieutenant in the RAF from 1939-1959, I have lots of documents and postcards from his travels in particular in the early 40s in North, Central and South America, no idea of his unit but one document states going to RAFFC Canada, Dorval, Prov of Quebec, some medals including the Burma Star, 1939-1945 Star, France & Germany Star, and other campaign medals. Have sent off for his military files. Hoping for help and knowledge in the meantime.

    Thanks

    Meteorology is a science; good meteorology is an art!
    We might not know - but we might know who does!

    Went to the USA, by sea, in 1942 presumably to do his flying training in USA/Canada?
