    Default PO EG Bacon - 542 Squadron

    Does anyone have a photo of Pilot Officer EG Bacon (known for obvious reasons as 'Eggy'). I had contact with Gordon Puttick many years ago but he wasn't able to help. I'd like to be able to publish a photo of him to go with my research into one of his PR overflights.

    Apologies my research area is German aircraft development. I have to confess to being a bit of a duffer vis a vis most aspects of RAF research so please forgive my ignorance. This is obviously derived from the London Gazette but what do the two numbers actually mean?
