    Default Help requested for some RAF Officers

    Hello,

    I am looking for some details on the following RAF pilots (service numbers and first names) who are still giving me some trouble :

    C.H. FLETCHER (s/n 1375522 Sgt by Mar-43 believed to have received his commission later)
    A.H. JAMES (F/Sgt by Feb-44 believed to have received his commission later)
    J.H.F. KELLY (F/Sgt by Feb-43 believed to have received his commission later)
    P.F. LYNCH (Sgt by Mar-43 believed to have received his commission later)
    R.M. PARRACK (Sgt by Jul-43 believed to have received his commission later)
    M. WISBY (F/O by Sep-43)

    Many thanks in advance

    Default Parrack

    Thismay be Parrack?

    As Flight Lieutenants, temporary (two years on the
    active list): —
    1st Sept. 1948.

    Reginald Mark PARRACK (18405) (seniority 18f/i
    Dec. 1944).
    Gazette Issue 38532 published on the 8 February 1949. Page 1 of 8

    He is actually mention on page two of the same issue!! Commissioned 1948/49.

    Increase the search period to beyond 1948 on the London Gazette search engine.

    Cheers Dennis

    Default New names and PoWs

    Many thanks Gentlemen,highly appreciated.

    Would any of you be so kind in looking for the following names :

    F/sgt E.W. PEARCE (rank in June 43)
    F/Sgt H.S MUTCH (rank in April 43)

    I have also a Sgt J.T. COLLIER or COLLYER sn 591185 (in 1943) and the true spelling is varying. Any help appreciated.

    Also, I have two NCOs who became PoW probably by the Italians as they don't appeared in the German camps list. They are Sgt R.A. KIRKIN and Sgt L.O. HARRISON both were made PoW on 12.04.43 in Med area. They may have been released after September 1943. Any chance to have their service number?

    Thanks

    Phil
