    Hi,

    He was promoted to W/Cdr on March 30th 1943. Looking for any details on his RAF pre this date.

    TIA

    Try searching the London Gazette (https://www.thegazette.co.uk/) by entering his service number (37468) in the search box. There are 21 hits several of which are relevant for your man.

    Hi Chaz
    Are you certain he was awarded the DFC ? I can find no trace of that and note that in the Retired List he is recorded as holding an MA but nothing else.
    He was MID in 1946.
    cheers
