John Alfred Green. b.12/05/1901 d.1987 Nottingham.
During research today I have found out a little more about my great grandfather John Alfred Green. During one search I found a document from The Royal Airforce Airmen Records, 1918-1940 for my great grandfather. I can view the document but as it seems to have been scanned in I cannot read the details on it properly and would like to. Does anyone know if it is possible to either get a copy or view details online?

His record is on Findmypast ( if his service number is 329473). You can scroll in and out to make the image larger or smaller. Is there a particular bit of it you need help with?

His height was 5ft. 6inches, 30.5 inch chest, light b rown hair, blue eyes, fresh complexion.

Discharge date 23rd July 1920

That's a clearer copy of it, thank you! My Mum didn't know until tonight his proper name was John and not Alfred!
Thank you ever so much x
