    Default Dickson RNZAF First Name/s

    Hi All,

    I’m looking for the first names of this airman who served with 158 Sqn and was on Wellington Z8441 and was injured when the aircraft took off to attack Billancourt on the 3/4 March 1942 and developed engine trouble and crashed.
    Chorley’s Bomber Command only lists his as Sgt Dickson RNZAF.

    Thanks,

    John.

    Hello John,
    You have DICKSON ?
    Chorley has -
    DICKISON.
    (Page 41, 1942 BCL ).
    Which is correct ?

    Vol 9 of BCL has
    Page 473,
    NZ4216679 DICKSON, Douglas James - 16-04-45 - 11 OTU.

    BCL vol 7 (OTU's).
    F/O. Dickson D. J
    Wellington X - 11 OTU - LP651
    All seven few killed.

    OK, I see that Col has given the correct spelling and answered you request.
    Good work Col:)
