Recommended Posts

Would appreciate help understanding the attached record. I've cropped the portions that require deciphering.
Would also appreciate any suggestions re additional records available.

 

Douglas Wilson McIntyre

Service No. 168833

H.M Force: RAF

Birth: 9-12-88, Penang, Straits Settlements

Current Engagement Commenced: 18-05-18; Age 26 11/12; D(uration) of W(ar)

Actual Entry: 18-5-18

Civilian Occupation: Electrical Engineer

Marriage: 30-8-18, Bristol; Mrs N? McIntyre

 

Additional Request:

Graduated as Electrical Engineer, 1913, according to UK, Electrical Engineers Lists. Appears in Bristol from at least 1914 until his death in 1958 (Westbury-on Trym).

I'd appreciate any suggestions where he could have gotten his training to obtain additional info and confirm his father's name/origin to confirm relationship. I'm pretty sure but not certain.
With the lack of documents from Penang, school records have been very helpful with other family.

 

Thank you for your help!

Jill

On the 1911 Census of England and Wales there is a 25 year old Douglas W. McIntyre, born Calcutta, India, who was recorded as a boarder at 50 Zetland Road, Bristol. He was working as an Electrical Engineer for the Bristol Corporation, employed at a Sub-station.

 

So if it is the same man then sounds like his experience was with power networks and he may even possibly have done an apprenticeship with the council.

 

Hope that helps,

Peter

Recruits Depot (Blandford or Sth Farnboro) to STHC (not sure what this is) 26May18 but looks like an attachment from RD

Then Recruits Depot to BEF Independent Force 11Sep18

BEF Independent Force to 6 Aircraft Park 20Sep18

6 Aircraft Park to 57 Sqn (in error) 14Feb19, so probably stayed at 6 AP until return to UK on 01Apr19.

 

He was given medical category 'A' on 06May19, presumably upon discharge.
