    Sgt Edward Arthur KIMBER of 230 Arlington Avenue, Ottawa. The Ottawa Citizen has an article dated 7th January 1944 announcing his graduation from No 9. Bombing and Gunnery School as an air gunner. There is a picture of him too.

    Possibly John Francis LISTON of Ottawa enlisted May 1942 aged 18. Attended No 4 Air Observer School, London, Ontario where he graduated as a Bombardier in May 1943. Ancestry.co.uk (The Ottawa Journal 29/05/1943)

    It all depends when he joined the Squadron to help determine if it could be him.

    Chris,

    I can't find this on my ancestry subscription, could you send me a link please. Thanks for you help with these I think it is the right Liston but I'll fish out his arrival date to be certain.

    Thanks
