FMP has Jonathan Booth ( not Joseph) with that number as being RNAS transferring to RAF. No mention of OLL.

TNA has Joanathan Booth (yep that's they way they have transcribed his name, but not Joseph) with that number as RAF. No mention of OLL.

Did you spot his second pension card?

Fold3 has his airman's record: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/search/collections/61400/?count=50&f-Self-Military-ServiceNumber=221004&f-Self-Military-ServiceNumber_x=1, but I don't belong.

:thumbsup: Thanks, but most puzzled by the O L L - what does that stand for??

I also don't have access to Ancestry - but have now noted a seven digit post war RAF number [which though seemingly not related to this man will start similar a new thread!]

Can't help with OLL although there is a dash after the last L.

Johnathan Booth has two navy service records, 

J50828 then F21004 upon trf to RNAS. 

He then has 221004 upon trf to RAF and has the airman's service record noted above.

All three records are on FMP. No obvious clues in all those records as to OLL.

OLL has me stumped (Observation something or other?), but here is something I found in TNA files: https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/N13712325. Could OLL be a file/library reference?

I think that just relates to Oliver Locker-Lampson, the creator of that file.

Now wouldn't that be ironic! Thanks for looking.
