    Default Group Capt. David Roberts DFC AFC & Bar

    David Roberts, born 6 May 1923, commissioned on 20 Feb 1943, promoted Group Capt on 1 Jul 1964, retired on 6 May 1978. He appears in RAF Retired List of 2002, which is the last I have available to me, please can anybody advise when he disappears from the retired list and appears amongst the Obituaries at the back ?

    thanks for your help Pete




    Incidentally I have Retd Lists for 1975, 1984, 1996 & 2002 if anybody needs a look-up at any time
