    Hello All,
    This is a difficult problem! Bear in mind that when all these non-RAF air forces personnel (both Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth) were arriving UK those responsible for allocating Service Numbers were, basically and in the beginning, “making it up as they went along”. What might have been done in one place and at one time may not have been the same as in another place/time – and either/both countermanded from “On High” at some later stage?!!
    As far as I was concerned the Number that appeared on my RAF F1250 (both as an Airman and an Officer) was my Official RAF Number, but I suspect that there are not many images of F1250s from those times in existence!
    This would appear to be within the spheres of expertise of Jim Routledge and Malcolm Barrass? This is where they earn their corn!!!

    Thanks Jagan.

    I came across them quite by accident. There are pdf files on that site for each year from 1939 through to 1945.

    Regards

    Simon
