It's easy for me - 5 years WRAF and my OH was in RAF for almost 25 yrs. When you apply at least you will have his trade and two possible ranks that are correct RAF ranks for flight engineers.  :)

Hi there
I am currently looking into my late grandfather, Stanley Childs, RAF history.  We know very little of his service as, being like many others who served in the war, he spoke very little about his time served.  What I do know is in September 1939 he was in Hednesford, Staffordshire, and during the war he was stationed in Lyttelton, South Africa, Egypt and Scandinavia. It is believed he was a flight engineer but not 100% sure of this.
I have tried searching for his service number and have found two possibilities:
1213370
1427481.
I was wondering if anyone has any information they could share? It would be greatly appreciated. :)
Thanking you in advance
Monique
