These lists are the W.E. Lists [War Establishment Lists] for the Squadron for 1944 and 1945.
There are likely to be errors or inconsistencies in individuals dates and possibly service numbers and there certainly are in their ages etc., as these were often completed in the field in addition to being transcribed from the duplicated forms in the War Diaries, which are often difficult to decypher.
