I am just wondering if the Sid Kaufman listed as a CBS employee who had served in the military (1942-46) US Signals Corps (42nd Rainbow Infantry Division) might have been the same Sid Kaufman who was billeted with my Grandparents Bill and Mollie Wray in Branston village near Lincoln in England during the 1940s.

Technical Sergeant Sid Kaufman worked at the highly secret Wireless Station (part of the Royal Air Force Y Service - which provided data for the Enigma Codebreaking effort at Bletchley Park) at Branston Mere, near RAF Waddington. Could the CBS and secret Wireless Station person be the same man?

Many thanks in advance
