    Apologies if this is posted in the wrong area, I am more used to WW1 research.

    My wife would like to identify which service her uncle was in during WW2. Can someone identify from the attached image?

    UPDATE with image.
    A photo of a cousin shows similar forage cap and uniform during his aircrew training.. He graduated as an Observer with the rank of Sergeant.

    Thank you guys.

    Owen - you confirmed my thoughts that it was RAF

    Blutto - thank you for posting your cousin's photo, it shows the same uniform that my wife's uncle is wearing.

    Thank you AlanW.

    Can I ask where this came from? Is it part of his service record and if so, where could I see it?

    I'd suggest what he has posted is John's service number.

    From the N/A files, AIR78 Service Numbers. There is only one John Spencer Wilcox listed, so assume this is his service number.
