Percy and Reggie Blake Air Force

Postby Ela Jones » Wed Nov 25, 2020 6:00 pm

Good evening,
I am new here and come from Germany.
I am looking for a Percy Ernest Edward and his brother Reginald, William George, called Reggie Blake. Both born 1904 and 1905 in Bath, Somerset.
Both were in the Air Force.
My question and request for help.
How do I find out if either of them were stationed at Gosport RAF Station?
I have already enquired about Forces War Records, as there is a Percy and a Reginald in the Air Force in 1942. Unfortunately it is not possible to get any further, because it is under data protection.

Maybe you can give me a hint where I can search?
Thanks a lot
Ela Jones
