He is listed in AIR 78 with the service number you have - and annotated as a Militia Man.

AIR 78 contains a few misplaced cards - and his is one of them - look top left of the first page listing Muriel Dawson

Sea Losses of RAF Aircraft 1918 to date.

RAF Coastal Command 1939-45.

Between the Wars RAF Officers and Warrant Officers.

Thanks so much for your help people. I have found some things I really never knew.

@ Ross.

Thank you for that. For some reason he is not coming up. With Muriel Dawson all I get are people from WW1.

Middle left - click on preview image

select image 118

he is top left

For anything else you need to apply for his service record - everything else online or from other posters is "best guess" like the red herring of commission and not enough digits in service number
