    Default P/O McCormack - 615 Sqn

    Can anyone tell me the first name and/or registration number for this pilot please?

    He posted in to the Sqn from 55 OTU on 3 Jun 1941 and is not listed as having been killed while with them, at least in 1941.

    Hello,

    I suspect him to be Aus 400232 David William McCORMACK, R.A.A.F.

    According to Maton's "Honour the Air Forces", as a acting F/L, he received the DFC, gazetted on 6th February 1942, his unit being No. 615 Squadron. Bar to the DFC gazetted on 18th June 1943, same rank, same unit.

    Probably some our Australian friends will be able to expand.

    Thanks all. That makes for an interesting story. All four of the pilots that posted into 615 Sqn that day from the OTU did not survive the war.
