    Thanks once again to everyone who has responded, only 99 now unaccounted for. More names to follow in due course.

    Much appreciated.

    If he was a pilot there is a Ronald George HEAD b. 15/4/1921 Hamilton, Ontario d. 27/05/1995 Burlington, Ontario.

    His Ancestry photo shows him in air force uniform with wings as a Sgt. According to the paradie RCAF website he was later commissioned. I cannot find him in Canada Gazette.

    Chris,

    he was indeed a pilot, who arrived on 78 Squadron some time in early 1942 (sadly the ORB at that stage did not record SNCO Aircrew by name), I have no exact date of him leaving the Squadron for the same reason. I've messaged the owner of the family tree on Ancestry to see if they have any more information.

    Regards
    Daz
