    Default Sgt 942335 Earnest HALLAS

    Dear Sir/Madam

    This is my first post.

    I am researching Sgt 942335 Earnest HALLAS. He was killed on 20/08/1943 in a Catalina IB FP302 flying accident with 209 Squadron in Mombasa, Kenya.

    I have read previous posts from 2009 which have been very helpful. In these posts Earnest HALLAS is described as (PM A/AG). I understand the Air Gunner abbreviation but I am unable to discover what the PM A abbreviation means.

    Any explanation of this abbreviation would be most helpful.

    Kind regards

    PM'A'/AG was a typo and should read FM'A'/AG which is Flight Mechanic Airframes/Air Gunner. Also the correct spelling of his first name is Ernest

    Thanks very much for the update. This now makes sense.

    My mistake, Ive got another family enquiry ongoing with the alternative spelling.

    Thanks again.
