Has anyone come across this person while researching bomber command units.

The little we know about is from the LG, CWGC and short service histroy in the accident reprot concerning his death while with the ATA.

Service No. (926563) indicates NCO enlistment at Uxbridge September 1939.

London Gazette, Issue 36100 16th July 1943, as of 14th April 1943 Warrant Officer 926563 Albert Edward Fairman (146431) commissioned at the rank of Pilot Officer

London Gazette, Issue 36219 19th October 1943, as of 14th October 1943, 146431 A.E. Fairman promoted to Flying Officer.

Transferred to Air Transport Auxiliary at the rank of First Officer, recorded by Commonwealth War Graves Commission as, Third Officer Albert Edward Roy Fairman, ATA.

Killed 15th February 1945.

He was recorded as having flown operationally on Whitley and Lancaster aircraft before being injured by enemy action and dropped from operations for medical reasons but was still fit to fly in non-op areas so went to the ATA.

A similar thread has been posted over on the key publishing forum, http://forum.keypublishing.co.uk/showthread.php?p=1328167&posted=1#post1328167 with a little more about his personal history. As I have put in that thread I considered going to Kew and spending a day looking at the ORBs for Whitley squadrons on the off chance he is in a crew list somewhere.
