Re: 1/Lt S I Kvam 406 Sqn

on the webpage in question, those appear to be the meaning of the abbreviations above, though not in wider use.

Chris,

His full name was Stanley Inggolf Kvam. His USAAF NCO serial no. was T-190729. I do not know his officer serial number.

Re: 1/Lt S I Kvam 406 Sqn

It seems the middle (first?) name should be spelled Ingolf.

Re: 1/Lt S I Kvam 406 Sqn

Also, is Ingolf Kvam hyphenated as Ingolf-Kvam or not? It's a rather uncommon name with origins that are difficult to trace (at least for me).

Re: 1/Lt S I Kvam 406 Sqn

Having hopefully tracked down his son, it appears the family name is Kvam which the combat report says S I Kvam as opposed to S I-Kvam
