    My great uncle was a pilot in the RAFVR. Attached is a summary of his service/training record. He went missing on a training flight AW275 on 11/03/1943. A lot of his service record is to do with training in Canada. Does it look like he had passed his training before he went missing? From what I gather it looks like he never went on any bombing runs or anything - however surely he cannot have been training for two years? Would the fact he was only a sergeant (rather than an officer) show that he was still training? My nan never thought he saw active service, however another family member thinks he may have been present on a few active bombing runs. Any insights or assistance would be useful.

    If you haven't already you might also want to ask over on WW2talk. It's a sister forum to this one that tends to concentrate on the British side of things. What ever the source please let us know what you find and good luck.
