    Default An American in the RCAF serving with the RAF

    A researcher is looking to trace and interview the widow of the following airman. The problem being, he was an American citizen serving in the RCAF with an RAF squadron, does anyone have any idea where to look for F/O Allen's records? Would they be held at The National Archives at Kew or in a similar organisation in America, or maybe in Canada?

    Over to the detectives...

    Any help as always would be appreciated

    Regards
    Peter

    Since he has an RCAF serial number and he died while in that service, his service record should be availbale from:

    Personnel Records Unit,
    Library and Archives Canada,
    395 Wellington Street,
    Ottawa,
    ON K1A 0N3
    Fax: (613) 947 8456
