    Col,

    Ta mate. My records had him down as a RAFVR. So much for 218 Squadron records !!

    I have Errol Martyns excellent For Your Tomorrow Vol 3. It shows his service career but it make no mention of 218 Squadron. If the Air81 Accident File ( 218 Crash 16th December 1941) is correct, he was on the squadron for a period of time?

    Regards

    Steve
