Error in Carters DFC Book

Post by smudgersmith218 » Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:49 pm

Gents,

While researching a Aussie chap who operated with 623 & 115 Squadron and was awarded a DFC for completion of a tour over the winter of 1943/44 (a bloody miracle) I noted that both Carters DFC book and the DFC awarded to Australians by Maton both have him down as serving with 113 Squadron, Carters also have his service number incorrect.

I have never come across incorrect details in both excellent books before!

Hi Steve, without looking further are we talking about Cherry Carter, who flew in G for George ( Lancaster in Canberra, Australia ) ?
Cheers,
