    Default On the hunt! RAF Great Coat 1948

    Morning all.

    I am on the hunt for information on ex RAF serviceman 'Errington'. Service number 4046959? Coat dated 1948 - Item acquired in the north of England ( Northumberland / Tyne & Wear / County Durham ) region - should that help the search.

    I appreciate it.

    Regards, Gillan

    that service number was issued in a block allocated to RAF Cardington in Bedford in october 1949, can't tell you any details on the man as RAF records are still held by the MOD. link here for RAF Cardington : RAF Camp in Shortstown & Bedford, RAF Camp in Cardington, RAF Cardington Camp

    hope this is of use, regards, John.

    All the best, Gillan

    AIR 78 file, held at Kew, names him as Stanley Errington.

    Unfortunately, due his not having a middle name, it is impossible to positively identify any further records. There are five Stanley (NMI) Errington's born in the UK between 1927-1932.

    Cheers, Tom
