    Default Pilot Help

    Hi,

    I have a F/O H.K Ralph who operated with 218 squadron between July and September 1941.

    I just cannot find his service number or christian names.

    Any help will be very welcome.

    TIA

    If the Mods will permit a slight “Oh, By The Way”?:

    The name Keppel in yr Harold Keppel Ralph rang several bells with me. I Googled. Result:-

    Alice Keppel (1869–1947), Edward VII's last mistress, and great grandmother to Camilla, the current Duchess of Cornwall.

    And https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilson...ppel_and_Betty. I actually saw them as a lad in the local variety theatre.

    (Very few people, shortly after WW2, had TV (and those that did were in B&W)).
