Is a comma required here?

“During the war David was a pilot in the RAF.” This sentence looks OK to me, but would there be any reason for or against putting a comma after “war”?

Answer

The fashion for the last several decades is to use less and lighter punctuation. As there is no danger of misunderstanding the elements of the sentence without the comma, leaving it out is preferred. If one were to read the short sentence aloud there would be no need for even a short pause.
