    Hi Paul. The Airforce lists that I have are Oct 1943, Oct 44, Jan 45 and Oct 45.
    I don't see any Proctor, ter or Procker that fits the bill. The only Procter close may be this guy. Proctor. CSW J-6150 Air Observer. There is no Mc or MacBride that works. It is possible that he was an American and transferred back to the USAAF in early to mid 1943.

    Paul and Richard:

    PROCTOR, J R is noted as RAF on his assignment card.

    However, another remaining to be identified, Sgt PRICE, N G, is noted as RCAF.

    Regards:

    Robert

    Paul and Rob. The only NG. Price that shows up as an officer is NG. Price C-24649 as administrative or works and buildings.

    Thanks, Richard. Assume our N G Price he could have died between the Fortress delivery and your October 43 list appearing...?

    Rob and Paul. The Directorate of History in Ottawa has the full collection RCAF Air Force lists. I can give a contact if you wish.

    Richard thanks for the offer but I feel at the moment with the info we have about identification we are at the limit at what is possible with your 194e check kind regards Paul

    Paul. He does not not show up as killed in CWGC. There is a NG Price in Ross's lists with a low RAF service number that ended up being a POW. Its also possible that he transferred back to the US forces before Oct 1943.
