But apart from his RAF record, I have very little. My interest in him is that he went on to Auxiliary Division of RIC in 1920.
A really weird service record with a somewhat accelerated promotion from 2nd Lt to Lt Col in 18 months in the RAF, having been an army private in 1911
1911 census A Private soldier at 47 Glamorgan Hotel Gilfach Goch S Wales
1916 Oct 11. Commissioned 2nd Lt RAF - E.O.3
1917 Jan 19. Promoted Lt - EO2
1917 Feb 24. Mentioned in Despatches
1917 Jul 6. Promoted Captain - EO1
1918 Apr 1. Promoted Lt Col - SO1
1918 Jun 14 Mentioned in Despatches
1919 May 3. Relinquishes his commission on ceasing to be employed.
The only clue to what he was doing in his record appears to be
His birth is difficult, certainly I cannot get a man of that name born in Somerset in 1886, nor is he in 1891 nor 1901 censuses. I suspect he has changed his name.
Anybody know anything about him, I cannot find much, but he obviously had skills in demand
