S/Ldr Gerald Scott - 16 SquadronHi guise I have a copy of the 16Sqn ORB from April 1942 and compared to most ORBs it is pretty thin document. In April and May a "F/Lt Scott" is mentioned several times. On 10 July 1942 Form 540 records "F/Lt G K Scott, DFC received notification that he had been mentioned in despatches, London Gazette 1 January 1942." In the photo that was posted earlier in this thread, the CO is W/Cdr Pete Stansfield; S/Ldr (Ops) is Glen Pallot and I think Neville Guinn is probably the senior Army Liaison Office at least a Captain, probably a Major.

70th Aniversary of the Berlin BlockadeAs my modest and INCOMPLETE contribution to Berlin Airlift information, I offer the following: BEACHAM, John Desmond, F/O (193258, RAFVR*) - No.53 Squadron - Air Force Cross - awarded as per London Gazette dated 10 December 1948. Born in Birmingham in 1925. Enlisted in RAF, 1943, and trained in South Africa. Commissioned in March 1945. As a navigator who joined Transport Command in June 1946, this officer was posted to No.31 Squadron in India. There he did valuable work on the evacuation of Service personnel and British civilians from that country at the time of the creation of the Dominions of Pakistan and India. He also carried out many sorties in transferring Nationals to their respective countries. He returned to the United Kingdom in 1948 and joined No.53 Squadron in which he carried out transport schedule and special flights to the Middle East and Western Europe. He obtained a Transport Command “B” Category and his work in the air was characterised by the cheerful and efficient manner in which it was executed . In June 1948 this officer was included in one of the original Dakota crew who carried the first loads into Berlin before any other aircraft were available. Flying first from Wunsdorf and then from Fassberg and Lubeck he has completed 113 sorties to date, some of which have been carried out in the worst possible weather for navigation, both by day and by night. This officer’s first-class work and perfect crew cooperation have ensure the safety of the flights. His skill as a navigator and the calm, steadfast judgement with which he has resolved the difficult situations which have confronted him, together with his consistently high standard of courage, enthusiasm and skill, have been an inspiration and guide to the other air crews and his cooperation with his captain has been a shining example of unbreakable [?]team spirit. BENNETT, William Rhys, Signaller II (960996, Royal Air Force) - No.201 Squadron - Air Force Medal - awarded as per London Gazette dated 10 December 1948. Born 1912; joined RAF in June 1940 and signed on again in October 1946. Engineer II Bennett is one of most senior Flight Engineers as regards both age and experience in No.201 Squadron. He has always given outstanding service as an efficient [??] Senior Non-Commissioned Officer and as a most reliable member of his flying crew. His devotion to duty is unstinted at all times. Particularly have those qualities come to the fore during the intensive period of flying, under make-shift conditions, necessitated by the participation of the squadron at short notice in the Berlin Air Lift. He has given a most praiseworthy performance of steady, unswerving zeal and devotion to duty during his 125 hours flying as engineer in the crew of a Sunderland carrying supplies into Berlin. His technical skill, his meticulous care for detail, his keenness and determination have been most marked at all times and his performance in the air has set a ....Read More.HughAHalliday on 24th July 2018 06:33:37
