    Default Looking for first names

    Good morning

    I'm looking for the first names of the following airmen:

    A. JONES (1387986) - NCO, but the initial could be wrong
    F.R. McGILL (J26915) - RCAF
    J. WRIGHT (R78513) - RCAF

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanks

    Phil

    Phil,
    Can’t help with the Canadians, but IF the Service Number is correct then it was issued at Euston between 1 Aug 1940 and (probably) 30 Nov 1941 – most likely in early/mid-Apr 1941. IF your A(?) Jones Enlisted as soon as he became 18 then that would put his birth year as 1923. There are, however, a vast number of Jones’s around that initial/year – but it might help if it comes to narrowing down a collection of A(?) Jones!!!
    Good luck!
