5 Group Navigation Officer - full name of S/L Evans, DFC

Dear all,

Does anyone do have the initial or full Christian Name of Squadron Leader EVANS, DFC who was Nº 5 Group Navigation Officer between the end of 1942 up to mid 1943?

His RAF service number or RAAF/RCAF/RNZAF number would be a plus if someone do know.

Many thanks,
Adriano S. Baumgartner

Dear Ed,

The EVANS, DFC I am looking for few some missions with Nº 467 Squadron on Lancasters as a Navigation Officer and was still a full Squadron Leader by mid 1943. At first I thought you had found the person I am looking for, but it seems no...Donald Randell Evans flew on Fighter Command (FIU) and was a Wing Commander by 1941: http://www.rafweb.org/Biographies/Evans_DR.htm

However one can not discard

Adriano

Adriano,


106518 S/Ldr James Henry Evans, DFC + Bar.


http://www.49squadron.co.uk/personne...etail/Evans_JH


However, the number 42745 comes back to F/Lt Brian Herbert Evans who was one of the 50 murdered after the Luft III breakout so a transcription error.



Same man as in this photo: https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C265053
