Hi all,

Can someone tell me who the pilot was from the RCAF Spitfire VIII jf579 (AN0J) from the 417th squadron, Italy, January 1944?

I can't find it on the internet .

There were, at least, five that appear in the O.R.B., but the "book," in the National Archives, is a carbon copy, so is virtually illegible at times. F/S D.Eastman, was one, and another was F/O W.L. Burgess, plus W/O W.J. Chittenden. The next is unclear, but seems to be P/O G. Doyel, but the last is completely indecipherable; all I can make out is F/L DeL----------  something or other (possibly French-Canadian?)
