    AC BIST - J15646 - Alfred Charles of 418 Sqn. Hugh Halliday posted the following in 2002:

    BIST, Alfred Charles (R.56358 and J.15646); born 13 November 1908; enlisted in RCAF, Montreal, 24 August 1940. Trained at No.1 ITS (Toronto); graduated 6 November 1940, promoted LAC and posted to No.2 Wireless School; to No.2 Bombing and Gunnery School, 16 March 1941; promoted Sergeant, 17 April 1941 on qualifying as Air Gunner. Posted overseas, 18 June 1941. I have neglected to note when he was commissioned. Apparently taken prisoner at some point; reported safe in UK, 2 May 1945; repatriated to Canada 6 July 1945; released from RCAF, 11 October 1945.

    See: http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/01143.php

    JEC PRINGLE - R76364 - is this R78361 John Edwin Corydon Pringle?

    This site has Jollymour with same service number but initials "HY":

    http://www.c-and-e-museum.org/Pinetr...il/rds8-3.html (look at 24 January)

    And "HG": https://www.aircrewremembered.com/Pa...a-listA-L.html

    If that's the case, then he was Harold George, brother of Roy Donald, also in the RCAF. Vancouver Sun, 7 January 1944 has story of Roy, a crewman aboard an "RCAF Sunderland that crashed in the Bay of Biscay while on anti-submarine patrol". Skipper was F/Lt JA de le Paulle.
