    His RNAS and RAF Service # was PL39206, and has been merged under his enlistment CAMC Service # 01603. It should have been the opposite, with #01603 merged under #PL39206.

    It is disrespectful to him and his war career to characterize him under his enlistment rank as a Medical Orderly in the CAMC, when he in fact became and served as an officer and pilot in both the RNAS and the RAF.
