George Stuart Woodwark

(37842)

Be careful, the ORB does not accurately identify the Flying Officer Woodwark. The current research hypothesis would be in favor of George Stuart Woodwark. The latter joined the RAF in May 1936, and joined No.46 (RAF) Squadron on 25 December of the same year. He was commissioned to the rank of Flying Officer in November 1938. He joined No.615 (County of Surrey) Squadron on 17 December 1939. His passage was relatively undocumented and he disappeared after March 1940 (probably because of the loss of archives of the Squadron in the French debacle). His traces are found when he was promoted to Flight Lieutnant on 3 September 1940. The remainder of his career is not known. He survived the war, as he was transferred to the Reserve of Air Force Officers on 24 March 1945 as Squadron Leader (Administrative and Special Duties Branch). He resigned his commission on 29 August 21949 [1].
