Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – Sgt. C F J Cole

 

Charles Frederick John Cole joined the RAFVR about March 1939 as an Airman u/t Observer. He was called up on 1st September 1939 and after completing his training joined 236 Squadron at St. Eval on 3rd September 1940. He flew his first operational sortie on the 6th.

 

 

Above: P/O SG Nunn (seated on wing) in an uncaptioned photograph with two crew members. The handholds identify it as a Blenheim and the 236 Squadron ORB shows that he always flew with Sgt. CFJ Cole and Sgt.S Sheridan but it is not possible to say which is which.

***************

 

Cole’s subsequent service is currently undocumented but he does not appear in the casualty records so it may be assumed that he survived the war.
