He may have been seconded in some way from the RCAF but more likely that he left the RCAF to go to the CAWC as they were Chinese-American org only.

I have a 405 history if you'd care to share the name.

Darrell... I agree. A bit of a mystery. He was an active member in the Burma Star Association. It is my understanding that you had to be a recipient to be a member. I have sent along his name to you in a PM.
