    Default Empire Central Flying School courses WWII

    Can anyone provide me the dates and numbers of the Empire Central Flying School flying instructors' courses during WWII, please?

    I understand that No. 4 FIC was 24 February-10 June 1943 and No. 7 FIC was 13 January-12 April 1944.

    I have a man who did a course in 1942 (presumably No. 1 or 2 FIC), one who completed a course between September 1943 and January 1944 (presumably No. 6 FIC), and one who completed his course 1944-45 (presumably No. 7 or 8 FIC).

    Can someone fill in the blanks for me, please - exact dates and course nos.?

    Many thanks

    Hello,

    AUS269 S/L Ian Frederick D'Arcy ROSE RAAF

    E.C.F.S. Course No.3 (FIC) 11 November 1942 - 20 February 1943

    AUS404123 F/L Leslie James WEBSTER RAAF.

    E.C.F.S. Course No.6 (FIC) 22 September - 22 December 1943.

    NB. This was the length of Rose/Webster's postings, not necessarily the length of their course.

    I know that, 08021 Air Commodore Gerard Stephen ODDIE DFC, AFC, was the Commandant of the E.C.F.S., in 1942.

    and ...

    https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C996334 E.C.F.S. Course No.4 (FIC) 27 February - 26 May 1943.
