    Default Help identifying RCAF Pilot

    I wonder if anyone can help with the first names of the following chap:

    J25824 or J225824 FO M W Thompson RCAF

    He flew a tour of 30 operations between November 1944 and April 1945 with No. 78 Squadron arriving at Breighton on the 14th November 1944 from 74 Base. The ORB has him with the two numbers shown.

    Any assistance appreciated.

    Thanks
