    Hi John,

    Unfortunately, this is one time AIR78 let you down.

    The Christian names jump from John to Norman. I looked at all Popplewells (AIR78/128/3) and none have the service number provided in your post.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for checking, I did a double check and thatís the number on his log book. I got his initials off some typed information that came with the logbook, so perhaps his initials arenít J R?

    Cheers,

    John.

    Hello,

    A partial answer (49796 Charles Edward TWITE's [DFC] Log Book):

    https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/a...d-a9050109ad39

    See pages of Twite's Log Book (enlarge page for crew matrix - Sgt. L. Ray/Roy POPPLEWELL - Flight Engineer).

    Hi Col,

    Yes that was his skipper, his logbook has a similar photo of the crew.

    Cheers,

    John.

    Looks like J. Ray Popplewell in the signature, so possibly Joseph Ray Popplewell, b. June 20th 1915, Barnsley?

    Regards
