    Default AIR FORCE LIST and POWs

    Many thanks Gentlemen for the previous information supplied, highly appreciated .

    Would any of you be able to look at the following names (first names and service numbers):

    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

    Phil,

    There was also an Eric William Pearce (140785), who later transferred to the RNZAF, but he is not your man (having been a direct commission into the ASD branch in Feb 1943).
