    Default D V Couta RAF Kenley 1938

    Hi all,
    I am trying to trace somebody that was based at Kenley aerodrome in 1938.
    The name is D V Couta.
    I have a Christmas card with their name on it and wondered who he or she was.
    Thanks in advance for any help that you may be able to offer.
    Kind regards
    Gerry

    Possibly Denis Victor Couta? He's on the 1939 Register living at Linton Road, Hove, and recorded as being an R.A.F. Corporal, 90 Squadron.

    Air 78 has 356854 D. V. Couta.

    Regards

    Hi Peter,
    That's great information, thank you.
    I wonder how he won the mid.
    You have given me plenty of detail to expand my search. I'm very grateful.

    I've not explored it, Gerry, but he's also on Ancestry. Googling produces https://www.ancestry.co.uk/search/co...0/?name=_Couta. (scroll down )

    See also:- https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/a...8-a43c00cbd868. They came up at Lymington, Hants. The Auctioneer might still have seller/buyer details? But I doubt he'll release them (DPA), but if it's important you could go FOA?
