    Hi Rob. Eric A. Church seems to be the right guy. The page I have is curled and it looks as if the last 3 numbers are 645.

    Thank you all for your help, you have helped me immensely. I can confirm that Eric Arthur Church is the my missing WOP. At this page http://aircrewremembered.com/griffiths-george-dfm.html you can read some about him and see his picture. Eric will now be forever remembered along with his fellow crew mates he joined at 15 OTU in my book I am writing on the crew.

    Thank you again
