<156 Squadron RAF
London Gazette Entries

In my continuing research on 156 Squadron I have spent an inordinate amount of time searching for records in the London Gazette.

The search engine results from this site are relatively poor. Give only a surname and you are more than likely swamped with results, give more that that and your are likely to get nothing.

As a result I have downloaded a lot of details, and applied my own indexing.  I now have details on around 18000 awards which are searchable by Name and First Initial.

The search engine also has what is called a SOUNDEX search (i.e. Sounds Like) In this type of search the name Riley would return hits on Reilley, Reelly etc.

The results page shows the London Gazette date and Gazette Number, given these details you should be able to search the London Gazette Site successfully
