    Default James Terriss Leitch

    I have decided to help trace my other Grandfathers war service, my father has asked me to help with this.

    My Grandfather was RAF ground crew, I believe concentrating on aircraft recovery, I know he spent a lot of time in the desert and was awarded 14 awards including a mentioned in despatches.

    I believe his serial number was 522971, I think that is one number short, but could be because he served until retirement I believe in the seventies.

    So please any info on Leitch, James Terriss 522971 would be appreciated. I am thinking of setting up a webpage to commenerate both my Grandfathers.
