    Default S/Ldr promotion

    Hi,

    I have been unable to determine when F/Lt D.R.W Forster 124611 RAFVR was promoted to squadron leader rank. The squadron ORB is conflicting and in non squadron related files he is reported both as a F/L and S/Ldr at the same period.

    Any help advice welcome.

    Hi Pavel.

    I think that's the wrong Forster ?

    Is is recorded as S/Ldr in the summer of 1944.?

    Well Steve, might be error in the LG but the Service Number fits with yours.

    Well in June was published his promotion to F/Lt only w.e.f.23.4.44

    https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/...upplement/2869

    While thinking of this confusion, it remembers me another officer I have researched while ago, where was similar confusion with ranks. Finally I have found out that one writer used his real rank while the other used his Acting rank. Maybe it can be also your case?
