    Default RAF Volontaire Reserve in M.E. and A.A.F.C.S.

    Hi,


    Flight Lieutenant Van Wyck, F/L H.R. Pengelley and F/L Fyfield were with Free French Air Force M.E. in 1942.

    Does anybody know if one of them came from RAF Volontaire Reserve ?

    What is the signification of A.A.F.C.S. ?

    Thanks in advance,


    bertrand

    Imagine their service numbers (if you have them) would yield that information. Of course they may not even have RAF numbers, would depend on their arrangements made for their service with RAF.
