    Hi Jon

    Frederick Ridge 1108861

    Regardless, in official RAF documents and terminology, all Airfield Construction Sqns were numbered in the 5000 series, not 6000, which was allocated to Flights.

    The SD161 definitely quotes that 6021 was a BD Flt but was under the control of No 5134 ACS at the time.

    It wouldn't be the first time a clerk in the Records Office entered incorrect details, which then got passed on to CGWC

    Hi Jon

    You have two entries for the same airmen: -

    Louis Alan Walter Bilverston 1616004, attached to SHQ at RAF Witchford, died in RAF Hospital Ely of acute phistis

    Louis Alan Walter Bilverston 1616004 , attached to RAF Feltwell, died in RAF Hospital Ely of pulmonary tuberculosis

    Which is correct?

    Malcolm
