AN antiques restorer who discovered the identity dog tags belonging to a former RAF man in an item of furniture, is keen to return it to his family.

Ray Morris, who himself is 82, said that he found the RAF dog tags in a box inside an item of furniture he was asked to restore.

Mr Morris said that the proprietor of the Now and Then antiques shop asked for the item to be restored and the identity tags were found at the bottom in a box. He believes that the item of furniture came from the Ross-on-Wye area.

Mr Morris said: “The RAF man’s service number is contained on the two tags along with his surname of Davis.

“I felt that these Second World War items are personal and should not be thrown away and efforts should be made to return them to his family.”

The Forces War Records have the serviceman listed as being Alan George Davis along with his service number RAF 1876473.
