    Default W/O Jones – 186, 247 Sqdns (Typhoons)

    Hi,

    Could anyone tell me the full name and service number of W/O Jones, a pilot of 247 squadron?

    „W/O Jones proceed on leave, it being his intention to take the foolish step of Holy Matriony“

    „On Wednesday afternoon at St. Thomas Church he married Miss. Mollin Rigby.“

    The town of Rhyl, probably 15th Nov 1944. His father Sydney Smith Jones.

    02.01.1945 his Typhoon MP201 was hit by RB209 of 168 Sqn (F/L Stubbs killed) B.78 Eindhoven (NL).

    "'Jonnah' escaped with burns which kept him off ops for a month."

    Regards

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you very much. Sorry for my delay, but I tried to find something else – and a dash helped…

    Sydney SMITH-JONES 1434998 (AIR78)

    Enlisted Apr 1941 Cardington (1425001 to 1474999)

    So the pilot of Typhoon MP201 ZY-O, 247 'China-British' Squadron, was W/O S. Smith-Jones.

    Or not?

    Regards

    Mojmir
