    3. P/O Roger Dennis Crozier

    all three of the above corrections are also confirmed by files from RCAF personals records which Dennis Bourke found for me. Thanks a lot, Dennis

    I have one to add

    https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/c...liam-ellerton/

    Flight Sergeant BUCKMAN, DEREK WILLIAM ELLERTON Service Number 1803124 Died 01/12/1944 Aged 21
    117 Sqdn.

    The Unit is actually 177 Squadron. 117 Operated Dakotas. Buckman was lost in a 177 Sqdn Beaufighter NV375

    1944-12-01 Beaufighter X Fg Offr Brian Norman JACOBSEN + 425573 Sgt Derek William Ellerton BUCKMAN + 1803124 177 Sqdn NV375 Chiringa Failed to return from an opportunity target raid on POKOKKU Area


    The original CWGC roll has the error as 117 Sqdn

    But the 177 Sqn's ORB Form 540 confirms his loss https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...mageViewerLink

    I have one more RCAF.

    I used to send these directly to the CWGC's Ottawa office but all email addresses I used are now defunct.

    https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/c...ol,-roy-frank/ which shows him as a P/O but with an "R" number.

    Carol's service file shows a commissioning wef 5 June 1944. New number J90183.
