    Default S/Ldr R. C. Patrick, No. 206 Squadron, May 1942

    Hi all,

    would anybody be able to provide me following information about this airman:

    1) first names
    2) service no
    3) position? - I suppose he may be a Flight CO.

    TIA

    Hello,

    He was Richard Cecil PATRICK, 41457. DFC and bar, AFC.

    Can't help with his function within No. 206 Squadron.

    Many thanks for quick answer Joss!
    Thanks to your information I was able to locate nice website of 206 Sq where are details about him!
    http://www.coastalcommand206.com/page26.htm#1

    So he was the Squadron CO from April 1942 - I did not know that a Hudson Sq was led by just S/L

    Default Wing Commander RC (Butch) Patrick DFC & Bar - AFC

    Hi - just pickd up your request for information on Wing Commnder Patrick -I wrote a brief piece on his RAF career for the 206 Squadron Association which they were good enough to publish. I have been researching Butch Patrick for a while and if I can help in any way let me know. Incidentally, I have just found a drawing of him at the RAF Museum Hendon.

    Would be interested to know of your interest in our man.

    Dennis if you need more details just drop me a line - it was training flight and the interesting thing is that there was aboard mixture of 311 and 206 Sq members, all survived.
