deciphering RAF service record

Recommended Posts

Morning all,   

 

I was pointed to this section of the forum from the main sect.....

 

would anyone be able to help me decipher the movements section of this RAF service record after the 272 sqn?  He seems to have been up in Scotland going by the Luce bay station and the gen I can find on 272sqn . Also in the promotions section would the writing after the rank be something to do with his trade group?  He lied about his age aswell, he was actually born in may 1902...

thanks in advance

What date did he go to 6AAP?  I can't quite make it out.

 

If you know what he looked like and the dates tally, I have a photo of the personnel of 6AAP taken in November 1918...

l wasn't happy to see the rubber stamp notification "casualty card destroyed".

How often did this occur?

pierssc, sorry for not replying 'last year' I haven't been on in donkeys....  he was posted mid December '18, he was on 272sqn when the photo you mentioned was taken....  

nils d, I'm not aware that he was wounded or anything, being on home service. not sure why it was stamped as such?
