So, from that service record, we know we're looking at a man who had enlisted 3 Oct 1914 and transferred to the RFC on 29 Aug 1917. Served in France from 8 Jan 1916.

Can't see anything with a number though.

John Waterhouse's Airman's Service Record shows he was previously wounded 5/7/16.

 

One would expect this to appear in a CasList about 5/8/16 although with that huge Somme tally there might be slight delay.

 

Daily CasList 14/8/16    Wounded, Waterhouse J, Royal Scots, 17501  (Salford)

little update,

 John Waterhouse, his number was among those given to the 15th battalion,,15th (Service) Battalion (1st Edinburgh)
Formed at Edinburgh in September 1914 by the Lord Provost and City, although some 550 men were recruited in Manchester and for this reason the Battalion is sometimes referred to as the Manchester Scottish. Moved to Troon March 1915.
June 1915 : moved to Ripon and came under command of 101st Brigade, 34th Division. Moved to Sutton Veny September 1915.
Landed at Le Havre 8 January 1916.
16 May 1918 : reduced to cadre strength after suffering heavy casualties.
17 May 1918 : came under command of 39th Division.
14 August 1918 : disbanded in France.  thanks to jonbem and  charlie962  for your input Tonyrod.
