    RAF Pilots

    Dear all,
    Attached (hopefully) is a photo of 3 RAF pilots believed to have been taken in 1943 possibly at Dunnville Canada whilst they were undergoing training. The pilot in the centre is F/O James Holder a Canadian who was KIA on 04/09/44 whilst flying a Typhoon with 137 Sqn. The other 2 are (L)Bob Watby (R)Lorne Cully, I am trying to find out anything regarding Watby/Cully as I only have their names, I know that they were not KIA as their names are not on the CWGC lists, can anyone help?
    Regards
    Andy

      Most of my 137 Sqn research has been conected with the Whirlwind, I do however has the address of an armourer who served between Jan 44 and Jan 45 before being njured at Eindhoven. There's a slight chance that he may be able to help you.
