    Default CWGC Full Names: Only Have First and Surname: RAFVR

    All

    Jagan sent me a File of all those airman who only had initials. I now have at least first names for all of them - (these are separate from those on CWGC that have a First Name and then Initials)

    I have sorted all RAF personnel

    If anyone wants to help and spend some time filling in the gaps from Air 78 (or alternative sources) please do so!

    To give you an idea of progress there were 160 Names on this list and these are the ones outstanding

    I sorted all the Smiths out :-)
