Re: W/O Ralph Charles Wingrove 545011 RAF KAO 1945
The casualty files are being released to TNA in batches - the latest batch available for viewing is up to 1942
For 1945 you should apply to RAFAHB - they will say if they still have them or if they have been sent for processing at the TNA.
By Feb 1944 No.1653, in common with many Conversion Units and minor training units, had the duty of filing Form 540 removed due to manpower shortages. This duty passed usually to a more senior unit on the aerodrome eg Station HQ.
So the ORB stops at Feb 1944 you need to look in AIR28 at Chedburgh ORB and appendix
Probably a more relevant document is a rarely seen Flying Control Log book - only a few made it to preservation
