    Both the WAAF ACW2 are DOAS in the same list, side by side.

    Sgt [Pilot] J.E. CHARKER - 590993.
    Discussed here, I take he was solo pilot
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7098

    Huntsinger is only outstanding name therefore.

    Frustratingly, his name is in a 1943 Aeroplane magazine on google books but he is hidden by the snippets, it somewhere around Cas Comm 203 and 204 as WOUNDED OR INJURED ON ACTIVE SERVICE.—
    Cpl. M. Blythe; Fit. Sgt. G. Boylan;

    are visible in the snippet! Arrhhhh!!!

    The name seems to be in the 3 March 1943 Times newspaper if any one has access or credits, can they check to see if he is KOAS or died of wounds etc.

    Thanks friends for excellent co-operation; this is how I get rid of many names from the 'unaccounted' list.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Thanks Peter, and sure enough I seen his name in the March 11th flight magazine out of the corner of my eye tonight!! Died of wounds etc as you found in the Times.
    Scanned as:
    Sgt. F. R. Hunt-
    *'iiger;

    I fail to see why I couldn't find this from F. Hunt search at least.
