570 Squadron - F/O W J JamesHello, I'm sorry but the 570 Squadron ORB pages I have aren't in good condition so I can only write this about Jennings' crew: Flight Sergeant H.D. JAM_SON, 1684143, RAF, Navigator (one letter is missing so I think we should read Jamison or Jameson) Pilot Officer J.S. HENDERSON, NZ428319, RNZAF, Air Bomber Flight Sergeant W.P. MEATEN, 1588821, RAF, Wireless Operator Warrant Officer A.J. TODOROFF, R206211, RCAF, Air Gunner Sergeant J.W HILL, 1897522, RAF, Flight Engineer. I don't have the exact date of arrival of Jennings but all I can say is that he must have arrived to 570 Squadron at least late in the second half of 1944 because he didn't flew any of the D-Day operations in June 1944 and any of the Market Garden operations in September 1944. In my docs, at the moment, I have found 3 operations flown by Jennings (always with Stirling IV LK292 E7-V. LK292 is on a photo in one my books): Operation Varsity (24 March 1945, the Cross of the Rhine), SOE 'Blikers 5' on 21 April 1945 and an operation Doomsday (I don't have all my docs with me so I'll confirm you the date later if you want). Here it is for the moment. Regards. Bruno LECAPLAIN www.raf38group.org ....Read More.Bruno on 3rd May 2008 12:38:56

570 Squadron - F/O W J JamesAlthough not yet incorporated into the on-line data base, I have an expanded note on Todorof. I would appreciate anything more that would expand on his entry (although the identification of crewmates is a great start). TODOROFF, Sergeant Alex J.
