Hi there, one of the names glued into the journal: is Flight Lieutenant (Raymond Joseph) R J Hetherington, Morrinsville, New Zealand,who was from Squadron 33, personal number 414290. I’m not sure this of any help, but he was my grandfather, who flew a Spitfire, presumed dead when gunned down but later found in a German hospital recovered by British troops the previous day. If there was ever any references to him would love to hear from you.
On that post you will also find this in the comment section.
My Uncle was M. J. Mills of Auckland, N.Z. He served in 132 Squadron – missing in action 19-11-1942. His file is on the Cenotaph site of http://www.aucklandmuseum.com You may find other NZers there also. There is a photo of inside his hut at Dunnville. To find names who were in the same training unit on the web is astonishing. My cousin scanned Graduation Banquet covers. One has ‘The Three Musketeers’ written on top. Then underneath wings of RAF and NZ are the names–A.L. Ray – J.E. Shields – M.J.Mills. Also PDFs of lists of Commaning Officers – Flying Instructors – Menus and graduates.
