    Hi All

    Further to my previous posts about my Great Uncle Denis Rimmer, I have now recieved his records from the MOD

    I cant make much sense of them, other than I do know he was killed in action 21st April 1944 shot down flying with 97 Squadron

    I have posted them here though

    Hi Steve,

    To fill in some blanks:

    3 RC is No. 3 Recruit Centre (Padgate)
    4 SoTT is No. 4 School of Technical Training (Blackpool) - training for flight engineers
    1661 CU is No. 1661 Heavy Conversion Unit (Winthorpe) - HCU was where flight engineers joined their crews AND did their first flying. All work at Blackpool was groundwork and mockups.
    WCAD is War Casualty Accounts Department
