    Default New Zealand WWII Pilots

    Hi Can anyone tell me if there a website which will give me names of WWII New Zealand/ Aussie pilots if I have their service number?

    I'm looking for first names of..
    F/Lt Blain NZ 427542
    F/Lt Malcolmson NZ 414345
    Both were with 2 Squadron in 1945

    The Gazette is great for looking up British pilots but seems less informative on Aussie and NZ pilots.

    Thanks

    Blain's full name was Warren Alister Blain.

    There is no website for RNZAF names. Your best bet is probably me via this board, though as an act of courtesy I prefer it that folk making such requests also sign off with their actual name.
