Re: First names Pilot Officer W. Thomas and Flight Lieutenant R.N Wardell

All,

I am trying to find the first names of these 2 officers. I know little about their service.

W. Thomas - 23 Squadron in 1941, I believe he became a POW later in the war. His crew were KIA.

R. Wardell - Believe he was 35 Squadron in 1939.

Sorry for the lack of information and grateful if someone can help.

Thanks

Danny

Chris,

Great, thank you for confirming all of this! I saw the information on Thomas and his initial's, but no first name.

Thanks
