    Default 68 Squadron RAF names for KIWI mechanics

    Hello,
    Hope someone can help please.
    I am trying to confirm some names for KIWI mechanics of 68 Squadron.
    Can anybody identify an NZ mechanics (68 Squadron RAF ) from numbers? I no have initials and would like to put first names to them.
    They are:
    TAYLER (NZ.41454)- LAC RDF/Mech
    VAUGHAN (NZ.41746)- AC1 RDF/Mech.
    Does anyone can help me for this one?
    Many thanks
    Pavel

    Pavel,

    NZ41454 Donald McCallum Taylor, embarked on 'Aorangi' for Britian on attachment to RAF on 26 May 41.

    NZ41746 Charles Joseph Vaughan, embarked on 'Dominion Monarch' for Britain on attachment to RAF on 22 Jul 41. He appears in a group photograph of 488 Sqn personnel published in New Zealand's 'The Weekly News' of 17 Feb 43, page 19. The Air Force Museum of New Zealand could provide you with a scan of same, if you wish.

    Cheers,
    Errol
