Afraid I don't have any more info on him except his DFM citation and that he ended the war as an Officer.

May I suggest http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/index.php as someone over there may have come across his name.

Could you find any details of the DFC awarded to Arthur Harold Bywater (49875, 7 Sqdn., Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve) died 12/3/43?

Many thanks

Hey kyt
Are you still willing to look up DFMs in your book?

Thanks, Greg

Hey, Kit. Thanks for helping us all. I am new in Rootschat, and for some reason I can't send you a PM. But still need your help to find my great uncle.

Maybe you could send me a PM and then I can reply to that?  :P

I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Diego

Dear Kyt

He was

Flt Lt ( latterly), I think Flt Sgt at the time of citation,
