    Pete,
    If W B Cooper is 327159 then he was in the Block 326001-329000. This was RAF Boy Entrants from 1 Dec 1918.
    There are 9 (only 6 if you discount the 3 various William Benjamin’s) from FREEBMD that might fit the bill. Don’t know the age limits for Boy Entrants, so you might have to do a few more years either side to find all the W B Cooper’s in E&W. Don’t know Scotland/Ireland. Hr was a bit old to be flying?
    Q4 1900 Cooper William Broadhead Wakefield 9c 66
    Q2 1901 Cooper Wilfred Baden Colchester 4a 743
    Q2 1901 Cooper William Bingham Nottingham 7b 460
    Q4 1901 Cooper William Basil Portsmouth 2b 440
    Q1 1902 Cooper William Benjamin W Bath 5c 484
    Q2 1902 Cooper William Benjamin D Stourbridge 6c 184
    Q1 1903 Cooper William Bernard Fulham 1a 319
    Q4 1903 Cooper William Baden Derby 7b 646
    Q4 1904 Cooper William Benjamin L Birkenhead 8a 494

    Peter; thanks for your time and effort; it is much appreciated

    That's POST 3 resolved, hopefully information will come to light regarding POST 1 R.223054 ED Perrault (Wireless Operator) who may have served with 78 Squadron (DH Larson Crew). There was also another Canadian R.259547 E Garner on the crew and I am trying to establish his forenames
