I have a nice old book of the RAAF over Europe in WWII, it was printed in 1946. I've decided to trawl through it to try to bump up the RAAF pilot numbers - Ron has 36, which is patently not good enough...

Here are the pilots appropriate to the 1943 campaign I have found so far. I'm about halfway done... I know he'll have some already...

There's a couple of Observers/Navigatiors/Aimers but they are all noted...

W/C G. "Peter" Panitz 29/10/1943 No. 456 Pilot (DFC)
F/L R. S. Williams 29/10/1943 No. 456 Ob (DFC)
S/L K.M.Barclay 28-Sep-43 No. 453 Relinquished Command
S/L D.G.Andrews 28-Sep-43 No. 453 Assumed Command
S/L D.G.Andrews 15-Aug-43 No. 453 Combat with FW190's (no idea of rank on day)
S/L D.G.Andrews 8/10/1943 No. 453 Combat with Me.110's
F/O P.V. McDade 8/10/1943 No. 453 Combat with Me.110's
P/O C.R. Leith 8/10/1943 No. 453 Combat with Me.110's
F/O R.H.S. Ewins 8/10/1943 No. 453 Combat with Me.110's
F/O A. E. Kell 12/11/1944 ? Attack on Tirpitz
F/L Bruce A. Buckham 12/11/1944 No. 463 Attack on Tirpitz (RAAF movie Aircraft)
S/L French Smith Sep, 1944 ? PFF Master Bomber attack
S/L Peter Swan 12/09/1944 ? PFF Master Bomber (not the same as above)
S/L H. F. Slade 28/07/1944 ? PFF Attack
F/L H. B. Martin 15/09/1943 No. 617 Pilot Dortmund Ems Canal Attack (w/ 12000lbs bombs!) (Australian, but RAF Pilot)
F/L D. J. Shannon 15/09/1943 No. 617 Pilot Dortmund Ems Canal Attack (w/ 12000lbs bombs!)
F/L R.C Hay 15/09/1943 No. 617 Bomb Aimer
P/O L. G. Knight 15/09/1943 No. 617 Pilot Dortmund Ems Canal Attack (w/ 12000lbs bombs!)
F/S W. A. Watson 22/10/1943 No. 460 Pilot, "G for George"
F/O J. A. Critchley ? Sometime in mid/late 44 No. 460 Pilot, "G for George" final Op
P/O T. N. Williams 13/04/1944 No. 467 Pilot, "S for Sugar" 100th op
G/C Edwards (VC) 23/08/1943 ? Pilot that night, but seems to have been a station commander at the time

Have a look at the following links for RAAF Official Histories. All service personnel mentioned in the text have their details listed in the footnotes.

Volume III – Air War Against Germany and Italy, 1939–1943

Volume IV – Air Power Over Europe, 1944–1945
