     I am researching my family history and recently got a print out from the RAF Museum regarding John Arthur Yonge, a RNAS pilot who received the DFC in WW1 and who left active service with the RAF in 1944, which reads :

"Pilot, Service dept. Miles (Aircraft) certificate taken on Miles Monarch at Miles Aircraft Reading 8th March 1944."

     Looking up the Monarch on the web I see that there were three at Reading during the war. Would anyone be able to tell me any more about this reference either in respect of J.A. Yonge in particular or in general terms as to what went on at Reading or be able to direct me to other sources of enquiry?

John Arthur Yonge
     This page on the RootsWeb website may be relevant. You will find the name "John Arthur Yonge", who was born in 1893, the son of Rev. George Yonge and Anne Norgate, on the page. That would make him about about 21 years of age by 1914. You can access the entry by clicking on the title above.

John Arthur (Jack) Yonge died on 15th November 1973
at Penyhoo, Llangurig Powys, Wales.
