    Thanks Dave,
    But I got the number from a quick look in this forum's database.

    Which is confusing.

    P9497 has Wilcox and C16472411
    But also has
    P9497 with Everiss(RNZAF) and C16997653.

    FCL vol 1 revised does have P9457 though, I missed that .

    Too late to edit my first post.

    Thanks
    Alex

    Hello,

    GOULDSTONE, Robert Michael - P/O - 39914 - RNZAF.

    Should read:
