    Default RAF / Army Records?

    Some time ago a contact sent for his uncles RAF service record only to be informed that one could not be found. It seems the uncle was called up in 1939 and went initially to the Army, he wanted to serve in the RAF and it is believed he managed to get himself transferred. He served in the Middle East, possibly Aden and was a rear gunner at this time, later he was grounded because of his sight.

    My contact spoke to someone at RAF Innsworth and it was suggested that his uncle may have served with the RAF, but have actually remained in the army.

    The question is. Is this a possibility? and if so where does one look for a service record?

    Regards
    Peter.
