self-explanatory... however, names may not be listed with correct
ranking. If you find this to be the case, it is due to mention of
a person being found at an earlier time in their service. Un-identified
(RANK) Section: This
is the last ranking section on the list and contains people found
that were noted as members of 59 Sqn but not confirmed with a rank.
There is also an Unknown Rank section for ground crew. The ranking
system is listed from W/C (Officer in Command) down to Aircraftman
names are listed correctly and in alphabetical order to the best of
my knowledge. If not please let me know. Please note that some listed
personnel flew with multiple squadrons and may not have been attached
to 59 at the time of their death or time of de-mob. If this is so,
it may be noted in the "Misc" section as such =>>460
Sqn. (posted to 460 Sqn). This often notes just their "last"
If the name is followed by a linked award (DFC,
OBE etc) click on the link to view details of the award. If

any pride of flying with and for the RAF.
This section may include muster or other information such
as the name of source. If there is additional information about a
crew and/or mission a returned veteran was part of, there will be
a "crew" link here, or perhaps in a neighbouring section
that would otherwise be "NA".
Shows the date of death on active service, date a person
was recorded MIA (later persumed dead) or date they died after the
war. If this section contains "NA" then no record of death
has been sourced.. Links in this
section: If the date is linked (blue)
then click to view details of the crew the person was flying with
at the time of death, or their memorial page.
