I'm seeking information about Flt Sgt RV Cresswell, RAF, a WOM/Air, on behalf of his nephew who lives in NZ.
Flt Sgt Cresswell served with 517 Squadron, based at RAF Brawdy, in 1944, but early in August he was posted to 518 Sqn at Tiree to join a newly formed crew with Plt Off K Organ as skipper. Unfortunately,
Flt Sgt Cresswell and the rest of the crew were killed in their first Air Test, when their aircraft collided with another Halifax on 16/8/44. His nephew, Ron, is anxious to obtain any information about his uncle's wartime service from colleagues who served with him.
