    Default F/L Harold Clinton Charlesworth RCAF

    Hello everyone
    Could our RCAF experts please enlighten me with NCO/Officer service numbers for this Fighter pilot and any postings and dates.
    All I know is he was from Vancouver, BC and was with 412 sqn in late 1941, then to Malta to 601 sqn in 1942. Possibly was with 73 sqn in Egypt later that year and rested with 73 OTU at Abu Sueir form August 1943 to Feb 1944,
    As a F/L he was with 443 sqn from August 1944 to April 1945.
    Any definite dates and his Canadian training would be appreaciated.
    Thanks, Roy

    Chuck Charlesworth passed out No. 6 Course at 58 OTU, May - June 1941. He flew with my Dad and Rod Smith during the War. I will see if I can dig up any of the info you mention and get back to you.

    Thank you gents,
    I know he later flew with 412,416,601,73, 83GSU, 443sqns plus 73 OTU in the ME.
    Since my original query in 2008 I have found he trained in Canada with 1EFTS and 2SFTS.
    Thanks,
    Roy
