  • Michael woodall

    Flt lt m head dso dfc was a pilot in 514sqdrn raft flying lancasters 1943. My father was his navigator .

    • lifeboatadam

      That would make sense, Michael. Flt Lt head was with 488 Squadron from 13/07/1942 to 09/01/1943. Do you have any other details about him that I can use to update my list?

  • Peter

    Do you have any information about FS. Longhorn?

  • Chris Wyman

    Hi, it’s been a while since we had contact. Just looking at your list and would like to point out that my Dad, Leonard James Wyman, was a Flt Sgt when first posted to 488 but received his Commission and had the rank of Fg Off whilst with the Squadron.
    Also, Andy Shaw was a Pilot.
