Dear Experts. As the title says I am trying to research several RAF pilots, namely the following.
Flight Sergent. Raymond Algernon Reeves Smith
. S/N 1335530. 166 Squadron. Kirmington. Shot down 15.02.1944. Would like a photo of him & his crew if possible, I know quite a lot about Raymond, but any info would be gratefully recieved.
Flt Lt Gerald Norman Edgar Yeates.
DFC & Bar. Flew Mosquito's in Coastal Command. killed in 1947 in a flying accident co pilot was a South African Fighter Ace Major Kenneth Weeks Driver
DFC. Accident was near Wooton Under Edge. Any info on Gerald Yeates
would be very helpful. (Mother in Laws Cousin).

Kevin P Nash
. This airman left the RAF after the war and entered the Priesthood, becoming a Dominican Monk, who taught at Blackfriars School
, Laxton, Corby, Northants
. sometime after 1960 (when I left) he went to a Cambridge University, where he met a lady, he subsequently left the priesthood and later married the lady in question, they went onto produce two daughters, I am researching this chap on behalf of the old boys from school. Kevin Nash
was a Spitfire Pilot. His Ordination name was Fr Hugh.Sadly Fr Hugh has passed away.
We now change sex, as I am also helping research the RAF life of Ms Marianne Catterall
, who was better known as LIZ,
she was a Senior WRAF Officer in the Repatriation of POW's at RAF WING. She was also a friend of Kevin Nash
, and after the war was matron at two schools, both of which I attended, 1st one Penryn School, Winterfold House. Chaddesley Corbett, Nr Kidderminster. Worcs
, she then moved to Blackfriars School
(address above). If any one knows anything about any of these persons, I would be very grateful for any info, how ever small. Sadly Ms Marianne Catterall has passed away
