    I am leaving this here by his name is a bit complicated - he was born John Harold Chadwick Palmer born 19th March 1917

    However his father also Harold Chadwick Palmer died 1918 - so that is maybe when he became Harold Chadwick Palmer

    His mother remarried and became Beatrice Cooke Palmer MacGregor

    At school he was Harold McGregor Palmer but really should have been Harold MacGregor Palmer - so taking stepfathers name as middle name

    His probate say Harold Chadwick Palmer

    Just a note for

    Lt Joscelyn Albert Tudor Steele SAAF 103554V 02 March 1945 Liberator EW207

    The school has him as Joscelyn Tudor Albert Steele - But probate including Will has Joscelyn Albert Tudor Steele (which he signed ) so will go with Joscelyn Albert Tudor Steele




    http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?qnum=43137

    It looks like he did move his middle name around a bit as his marriage has Joscelyn Tudor Albert Steele

    and on the probate of his mother in 1950 he is listed as Albert Joscelyn Tudor Steele Morrison (deceased)


    he is J A T STEELE on CWGC
