    Default F/O Walter James Spurr. 409955. RAAF.

    Hi All,

    Any RAAF researchers out there. Looking at an accident card for Martinet HP418 with this pilot of 2 AGS at Fortrose on 9/10/44 and he seems to have a lot of hours on other types; Difficult to read but looks like 748 or 745 hours. Knowing that pilots were often sent to such units as a rest from ops, I`m wondering if anyone had heard of him with a squadron? He had only just been promoted to F/O on 11/10/44 and as a F/Sgt commissioned on 11/10/43. Regards Dave.

    Hi Dave,

    His service file is open at our Archives but not yet on line, it may have some information that might be able to help you. To get his file digitised will cost you about $40.00 AUD.

    Cheers,

    John.

    Thanks John. How long does it generally take for them to open the file after ordering? Regards Dave.
