    Default F/Sgt SG Allen RAAF (WOp/AG) 630 & 83 Sqdn Gamble crew

    Please can anybody help me with the first names or service number of this WOp/AG who flew with the crew of Doug Gamble DFC at 630 Squadron and transferred with the crew to 83 Sqdn in July 1944. I thought his service number was A420528 but this is incorrect.
    thanks for any help

    Hi PeteS,

    His service file is open but not digitised at our Archives, you can request it but it will cost you $36.00 Aud to have it digitised.

    Cheers,

    John.
