    Hi Pavel,

    some of the names are too common to search the BMD's (England and Wales), but here are a few possibles from the list, although i cannot confirm that they are definitely the same people. It is a lead to work from nonetheless!


    Cecil P Blows born last quarter of 1917 in Eastbourne, Sussex
    Ronald C F Day born in second quarter of 1923 in Portsmouth, Sussex.
    Ronald E H THOMSON (no P) born last quarter of 1916 in Hammersmith, London.
    Kenneth A A Willson born second quarter of 1921 in Bromley, Kent. There is also a Kenneth A Willson born in last quarter of 1926 in Ormskirk, Lancashire. Kenneth Albert A Willson passed away in Taunton, Devon in 1999.

    Cheers, Tom

    Hi Tom.
    Thank you very much. It was a very nice job.
    It is difficult to someone after so many years to identify.
    Regards, Pavel (68Sqn)
