    Hi Dakota an RCAF document query I am helping a family of a former regular RAF man (enlisted in March 1938 as ACH/GD and went to Balloon Command as a Balloon Operator) - 1943 and he moves to aircrew as a gunner (eventually completes 41 ops), but he is issued with an RCAF document (haven't been provided with a copy of the cover, but it is an R96) at first, then an RAF one later. The page I have been sent is his certificate of qualification at No. 1 AGS Pembrey on RCAF document R96 (with the RAF equivalent number under that). His complete RAF record that I have seen up until commissioning was solely in the UK - and his bomber command service appears to have been totally with 218 (Gold Coast) Squadron, so nothing abroad at all. If you can drop me a line on allan(dot)hillman(at)btinternet(dot)com I will provide you with jpegs of what I hold. But so far with the information provided I can find no reason for an RCAF document to be issued - or perhaps you know different!! cheers Allan

    Hi Chris

    What do you have on Beurling's accidents while at Sutton Bridge? I am aware of his 'shooting down' by Buckham but currently have no details of his two crash-landings. Have you any specifics?

  7. Hi Chris,

    Took more steps last week to prevent our persistent spammer gaining access to the board, looks like it's holding for the moment.

    Going over my Anson with a keen eye has revealed that some navigator has used his dividers to engrave the following onto the back of the pilots parachute container:

    a/c 8249

    Looking on Bill's numbers pages gives that a Lysander received repairable damage after taxying into Anson 8249 at RCAF Lethbridge.

    Any chance of you having a look at 8249 records to see when TOC/SOC etc.

    It may be my beast.
