    Default Sgt. Warren M.W. R.106453

    Hi,
    Sgt. Warren M.W. R.106453. Wireless Op/AG UT

    Has anyone come across this chap? He was at 14 OTU in September 1942 but then disappears from all sources I have searched?

    Regards
    Tobin

    Hi Tobin,

    There is a great site on both 462/466 Sqn, to back up what Jeff wrote, his name is listed with 466 Sqn but doesn’t appear to have seen any operations with them.

    Cheers,

    John.
