    Default Air Rank Officer - JEAJ

    I'm looking to locate an air rank officer with initials J.E.A.J.? I've tried TheGazette search function and the RafWeb Air Rank staff roll but no luck.

    J.E.J ??
    AVM James Edgar Johnson is fairly close - what is the context of your query yeo ?

    I thought about "Johnnie" Johnson but I don't think he had A. as one of his initials. Recently acquired an air rank officer's hat with the owner's initials punched in the leather sweatband. Usually, the tailors would punch in the full initials but it is possible there were more initials? Very curious. Closest is J.C.A.J. but I'm still positive J.E.A.J. is out there.

    Hi

    What is the context of this officer?

    AVM J E A Baldwin is the other obvious one if the 'J' is badly written/istyped

    Could it be J.C.A.J ? or is the 'E' very clear/distinct.

    Malcolm's list suggests a J.C.A.J. but the punching is very clearly a J.E.A.J. Probably reached Air Commodore rank late 50s - early 70s, judging by the design of the hat...
