Correspondent Graham Janssen has passed this information to me for publication on the forum:
321852 F Cdt T W House RAF
A fairly scarce rank the rank of Flight Cadet was given to pilots and observers under training before qualifying and being commissioned. Training would have taken place in a theatre of operations to qualify for the British War & Victory Medals and therefore a scarce rank.
Members may also be interested in the above medal, which is being sold by J Collins Medals (www.jcollinsmedals.co.uk). Apparently it is quite rare as their weren't many air crews during the First World War and T W House was obviously still in training being a Flight Cadet but he must have flown over enemy territory to be awarded the medal.
