    Default 57 Sqdn rear gunner Sergt Saigon (or Segon or Seygun or similar)

    Please can anybody help with this chap. He flew as a rear gunner with 57 Squadron in late 1943, certainly in Dec 43 and was loaned on one occasion to No. 630 Squadron across the airfield at East Kirkby in Jan 44. I'm keen to identify his correct name but am struggling due to the East Kirkby clerks apparent phoenetic recording of names occasionally.
    thanks

    PeteS, Hi,
    There’s a Leonard Arthur Segon (b. Q1 1923) Enlisted 1630983 (Block 1610001-1649900 RAFVR Cardington 01-Oct-41 to 30-Sep-42) about early Apr 1942 (aged 18) that might fit?

    Best I can do at the moment!
