Here is a mystery man from 304 Squadron.  He was a Jewish member of the squadron and seems to have disappeared from the records.  If there is anyone out there with information on him, please pass it on.  I have seen a record where the name is spelled MEITLIS and it is also possible that he served under a pseudonym to protect family in Poland.  If you have any information please pass it on.

NOTE: I have changed the spelling in the title of this post, following a contact from a member of his family, but I cannot respond to her message directly because there was no return email address in the comment. 

Please contact me again on 

As of 7th October 2014, I have received no further information from this person, but I have learned that he was a pilot with the rank of Flight Lieutenant and had service numbers P-794265 and P2068.  He was born on 10th February 1923 in Krakow and died in 1970 at Kfar Netter, Israel.
