    Default 196 Squadron Airman

    Hi,

    Trying to ID a P/O K.E Reaks or Reakes, Wireless Operator, circa Nov 1942. I do not have a s/n sadly.

    Any help appreciated.

    Air 78/132 has two candidates:

    REAKES Kenneth Albert 1812701

    REAKS K. E. 755022 (no forenames, but possibly Kenneth Ernest Reaks, b. October 22nd 1918, died 1997? Commissioned 1948 as 128706?)

    F/Sgt Kenneth A. Reakes was at R.A.F. Kirkham in 1946 - he's mentioned in a newspaper article in the Lancashire Evening Post of April 15th 1946, where he's recorded as being aged 21.
