    Hiya all,

    Just bought this photo off ebay, can anyone ID him. Yes a long shot. He has been awarded a DFM it looks like.

    Thank you

    Agreed long odds. I think you'll need lady luck on your side as 6637 were awarded in WW2 alone.

    You are likely to need to look at the back of the photo. If it was taken in a studio there is likely to be a date and the name of the studio (which gives a location). This can narrow things down when looking in the Gazette

    And something to keep in mind is that if this chap was an American in the RAF, his DFM will not have been gazetted.

    Same applies for airmen from the occupied countries. Poland, Netherlands, Czechoslovakia, Belgium etc.

    Regards,

    Dave
