Re: Identities Sought

Hi James and sorry for the late reply. I have the documentation for a records search from the national archives but I have to provide a death certificate which is a bit nonsensical because I don't have the full identity in which to request that. I'm going to try to finagle my way through that proces...

Thank you again, your assistanc...

Re: Assistance from Scotland Sought

Attached is a similar article we had published which led to making contact with the family of Sgt. Edgar Frederick Drew of 7 Squadron and Stirling N.6020. I had almost given up hope until I found a 1911 census record which led to this publication in his hometown in England. It has been wonderful dis...

On some flight records (see attached example), his last name was spelled "Nicholson" with the same Service No. When I saw the pr...
