S/L C. A. Cooke, DFC of No. 151 Sqn.

According to the website devoted to 151 Sqn. (http://www.151squadron.org.uk/) S/L C. A. Cooke, DFC claimed a FW 190 destroyed on 6 May 1944. Aces High, Vol. 2 gives a bio for S/L Charles Alfred Cooke, DFC (43634) who served in 66 Sqn. as a P/O during 1940 and later became CO of and then a flight commander in 264 Sqn. with his final claim made on 31 July 1942. However there is no info on his service career after 264 Sqn.

It seems to me very likely that these two are the same individual. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom

I believe you are correct. Anyway, that's how I have it recorded in my own records.

Cheers
Brian
