    Default F/lt W.m. Holland 141397

    I have recently aquired an origional mid-war Irvin Flying Jacket. Written on the back of it is: F/LT W.M. HOLLAND 141397. I have been told that this Officer flew in Bombers. Is there any way of finding out more information about him? I am not a relative.
    Thanks.

    Try searching in the London Gazette with his serial number. You will find him there as William Henry Holland, RAFVR. I found four records from 1943 to 1945. The final entry on 27 Feb 1945 is his promotion to F/Lt.

    His pre-commission serial number was 1059402 so you should search that too.
