F/S W.E. Stewart, F/L D.E. Forsyth

Post by georgetanksherman » Fri Jul 09, 2021 6:42 pm

Greetings everyone, found Flt Sgt William "Bill" Eber Stewart RCAF, R/77295 on Aces of WW II, Honorable Mention, which said he was AmeriCanadian, found him in 2 SFTS, assigned to RAF No. 260 Squadron, awarded DFM on February 23, 1943. But can not find out what the American connection is, he did survive the war and looks like he became an Architect, and settled in Canada.

Also on the same site, mentioned was Flt Lt David Esplin Forsyth, RCAF, J/11310, which also stated he was AmeriCanadian, Was mentioned in the London Gazette on January 2, 1945 for receiving a DFC



Any help would be appreciated

Cheers

George

And found these Operations records, in this record his rand is Warrant Officer…….just for your info, Flgiht Sgt is equivalent to a E-6 in the American Forces and a Warrant Officer is equivalent to an E-6 in the American Forces.
