    I have found my uncle's service number in AIR/78/18. However the record has MILITIA typed at the top. Can anyone explain what this means? When I knew him in the 1950s he was a Navigator flying Canberras, having previously been on Wellingtons and possibly Lancasters. Many thanks. Malcolm

    I am trying to find out which Squadron Joseph Riley from Macclesfield was attached to during WWII. He was a Corporal and I have a photo of him with the Squad but no one in the family seems to know anything about this. Perhaps someone out there will recognize others in the attached photo.
