    Default 83 squadron raf scampton

    Does anyone have photos of Avro Manchester R5838 OL-S and Avro Manchester R5790 OL-P between March-April 1942? My Father was rear gunner in these.

    Dear Peter
    Ther is no picture of either aircraft in the squadron history by Low and Harper.
    We had a brief discussion here on R5838 which you can find at http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?4862-AUS407565-Sgt-L-G-WHIBLEY-RAAF

    Try DORIS at Hendon. They may be able to help with a photo of both these B Flight aircraft.
    Happy hunting
