    Default Flt Lt Robert Ernest Evans RCAF J18702

    Hello again,
    Could anyone please help with the above Canadian Spitfire pilot. FL Robert Ernest 'RED' Evans DFC RCAF-J18702,
    He came to the UK 1942 and trained at 53 OTU from 28-1-42 on Course 4 then went to 131 sqn, as a Sgt. He was promoted to F/S on ?-7-42. On 25-11-42 was posted overseas, possibly to Malta. Can anyone tell me what sqn he was posted to and when was he commissioned. As a FO was with 401 sqn in August 1943.On 8-12-44 was awarded DFC possibly on 417 sqn.
    If I have made any errors with the above could you please correct me.

    Have you seen his entry here:

    Seems to take a while to load, but once it does click on "Description (click to view)" for full details of his career.

    Regards

    Hello Simon,
    Many thanks for a fantastic find, I had been to this site but could not get anything. Thats what happens when you are an ARP!
    Keep up the good work.
