CRAMPTON). Naming is officially engraved on the CFD. Mounted to a suspension bar with swing bar pinback, as worn by the veteran, extremely fine.

He was later struck off strength, November 7, 1936.

Cramptons official records are largely blacked out thereby indicating a hold on service details. Postwar, from 1945 to 1964, he saw multiple postings, including Halifax NS, Summerside PEI, Hamilton ON, Camp Borden ON, Aylmer ON, London ON, Trenton ON, Gimli MB and Winnipeg MB, where he achieved the ranks of Flight Officer, and later, Flight Lieutenant.
