    Chris, thank you very much for this, however the Newell I am looking for is an Air Gunner, he arrived on 78 Squadron as a Flight Sergeant on 21/04/45 from 1663 CU and the chap you have found appears to be a pilot who was commissioned in 1944. If it is the same man there is a major error in the ORB.

    thanks again for your great work

    I mentioned the Newell result simply because of the similarity in service numbers and based on the information supplied. It would be helpful if you could provide the trades of the airmen you are looking for ie Wop, Bomber pilot Nav etc and an approximate dates that they held a rank. They are listed on the Canada Gazette by rank date and trade. This would make them a bit easier to find and also enable us to rule out men with similar details. It might also help by posting smaller numbers at any one time as with this number it tends to become unwieldy and difficult to see who has already been identified.

    J43546 relates to a R151387 Sgt John Shaw Valentine J43546 Navigation Officer
    https://collectionscanada.gc.ca/data...645760len7tui0

    So the service number you applied to J Landry is a probable typo and the one assigned to Lanktree as identified by Mojmir should read J43536

    If it is any consolation in my own research I have traced 293 out 313 RCAF airmen that I have an interest in. There is light at the end of the tunnel
