Hi folks, I'm new to the forum but have been interested in WW2 for many years (ask the wife!!) I mainly post on my favourite topic, WW1. Now, the question....... does anyone out there know if there is a list of names etc that received the DFC???? I've been given (volunteered really) a set of 8 full size medals to tie down a guy's history. The medals are..... MBE (Mily) DFC 39/45 Star Atlantic Star + ACE clasp Africa Star + N Africa 42/43 clasp Italy Star Defence Medal War Medal + MID The problem I have is this, the chap in question, Harry (not Harold) Buckingham, signed up in 1938, did his RAF training on wireless and all things electrical. by 1942 he had risen to the dizzy rank of Corporal. He was discharged due to illness in Aug 1944 - still a Corporal. He was also (I'm assuming) ground crew as his trade was electrician. I have his service record which shows stints with 70, 104 & 108 Sqdns (Wellingtons)... thus the Africa & Italy Stars. DFC's were only issued to Warrant Officers & Commissioned men... he was a Corpl.?????????? The ACE clasp on the Atlantic Star doesn't seem to ring true either. I also have "his" Caterpillar Club membership card stating he was a Flight Sgt. Anyone have any idea about this chap? I've checked the LG and the only Harry Buckingham is a vicar in 1942, getting ordained. Help?!?! Les.
