    Default 581288 W/O Hugh Masters Navigator 144 Sqd ??

    I am trying to trace the service history of 581288 W/O Hugh Masters a Navigator, who joined the RAF in 1939 and was released in January 1946. His last posting with No7 Air Navigation School RAF Bishops Court as a Nav instructor. I know that he flew ops prior to the D Day landings, possibly with 144 Squadron and at some stage bailed out of an aircraft receiving the caterpillar Club badge. I would be grateful for any help researching this chap.
    Many Thanks

    Sgt HE Turner
    Sgt AR Simmons

    Jonny,

    Many thanks for the gen, I think you have hit the target on the nail. I checked BC index and he did not come up, seems to defeat the object, of an index although the BC series is outstanding. Roll of Honour I presume only refers to those killed.

    Thanks again.
