    Default 567891 HE Wheeler

    I am struggling to identify 567891 HE Wheeler who was one of the first Flight Engineers on No 35 Squadron.

    I am guessing that either his service number, or his initials, have been recorded incorrectly (in multiple sources)

    Can anyone shed any light on the matter

    Your usual help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    A Google search of "London Gazette" 567891 brings up 567891 Albert Ernest George WHEELER (54164).

    Confirmed in Air 78/168.
