    Default S/L Ambrose May 1944

    Gents
    I have S/L Ambrose flying from Coltishall to Hucknal and back in 1944. I cannot find any matching S/L Ambrose though. There were Henry Ambrose (156922), RAFVR, Charles Francis Ambrose (42583) and Alfred Percy Ambrose (131584), but neither of them was S/L in May 1944. I find H P Ambrose, OC No 263 Sqn, but I wonder if it is a typo for Alfred.
    Anyone has any idea about the proper Ambrose?
    TIA

    I am afraid neither of them fits. Four became S/Ls, only one during the war, and he was killed before May 1944. I have wondered about the surname being misspelled, but I am not sure how to misspell it.
