First of all thanks for the answers gentlemen

Harry, as I'm in Peterborugh 3 times a week this shouldnt be a problem.

Can i assume they are not on SDGW because they became the RAF in 1918 & if this is so why is there RFC ODGW?

All The Best

Chris,

The cross of sacrifice Volume IV includes RNAS, RFC & RAF other ranks, I have a copy if there's anybody in particular let me know and I'll have a look.

Probably as many Officers were only on attachment from their Parent Regiment & those who were purely RFC were Army anyway,as to why exactly I dont know,a bit of an anomaly!

Comrades

The book is Airmen Died in the Great War 1914-1918, compiled by Chris Hobson, ISBN 0 871505 81 X.

The excellent work covers all members of the five Empire aviation services who died, ie the RFC, RNAS, RAF, WRAF and AFC. In the foreword, the author says not all RFC and RAF officers are covered in Officers Died and that the other ranks were just about totally omitted from Soldiers Died.
