    Default Flight Sergeant D Cross 637467

    I am trying to trace information on the above D Cross, a friend’s grandfather. We gather from his service number that he signed up as a civilian from May 1938 onwards (estimate Feb/Mar 1939?). We know that he was discharged from the RAF in 1946.

    He may have Irish, Canadian or links in Doncaster. He signed letters to friend’s grandmother as “Danny”. We assume first name is Daniel but confirmation of this would help.

    May have served in 105 squadron, stationed at RAF Horsham St Faith in December 1941.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jon

    Default Thank you.

    Thank you Dennis. We’ve focussed all of our genealogy research on Daniel Crosses.

    Is there anything else we can infer from the record you shared?

    Best wishes,
    Jon

    Well your friend can order the mans service record from the RAF but since they didn't know their grandfathers name, they may not know when he died, if indeed he has.

    What age details otherwise do they know?

    From where did they have the serial number and surname and initial?

    From a letter my friend’s father, Donald’s son, received from the MOD, answering his letter asking for a forwarding address in 1979. We do not know if he ever followed up on their offer to forward correspondence.
