I am trying to find out when J E Fauquier finished his service in the RCAF. Also, was he still in the UK on 30 April 1945. I believe his number was C1399

Greetings, and a warm welcome to Rootschat.

http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/archive/index.php?t-50815.html has him as leading 617 squadron until 28 April 1945.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Emilius_Fauquier has him in the RCAF 1939-46.

http://enacademic.com/dic.nsf/enwiki/9705123 lists sources which might be worth checking:
* Oswald, Mary (1999). "They Led the Way: Members of Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame". ISBN 0-9684843-0-1
* Wise, S. F. et al (1980). "The Official History of the Royal Canadian Air Force. Canada Department of National Defence". ISBN 0802005748.

Hope this helps
Philip

According to his service record he retired from the RCAF 4 December 1945.

He was posted from No. 617 Squadron to RCAF Overseas HQ on 14 May 1945, so still in the UK on the date quoted.
