Q. D. Green, DFC - full name ?

Dear all,

Have tried and did not managed to find anything about a certain Flight Lieutenant Q. D. Green (or O. D. Green) which was awarded a D.F.C.

He flew with the Royal Aircraft Establishment later, in 1942.

Any help onto decyphering his full name and RAF service number most welcomed.

Hi Adriano,

Possibly Gordon Douglas GREEN (83723).

Best Regards

Andy Fletcher

Dear Andy,

Guess you matched it correctly....possibly as mis-read G for Q....

There is a mention to a flight with F/O Green on May 1942, with the RAE. A list of officers from the RAE do mention Q.D. Green, DFC....

Since Gordon Douglas Green, DFC was later awarded an Air Force Cross (AFC) in 1946, I do guess you have matched the person I am looking for.

Thank you again
Adriano S. Baumgartner

Adriano,

Gordon Green did indeed serve as a test pilot at the RAE.

Best Regards
