Can anybody assist here please. My b-in-law has bought a pair and plaque to the above , he "found" a photo of him on Face Book, but now cannot find it, is there any RFC bod out there who can "refind" it and confirm it is the flyer in question . Thanks Ralph.

Have you got all his name? / spelt it right??

 

Possibly:  CYRIL GOWER VINCENT RUNNELS-MOSS ??

Photo of this officer at IWM https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205388110 - rather looks like an OR service photo

- see also his MIC for fuller details https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D4165013 - 28th London Regt. 6477 / 761360

 

If so, this post also seems related to the above casualty.

Nobody any ideas as to the whereabouts of the photo in RFC gear that James is searching for. ????

There is a Facebook page called "RFC Airmen" which might have been where he saw it.

Actually have you tried Googling?  I found 2 pictures, one at the IWM (a thumbnail only - there seems to be trouble getting through) as a 2/Lt and one in RFC uniform on pinterest.

Not necessarily the right person?
