    Default Pilot Officer Herbert Capstick - Jamaica - 236 Sqn Navigator

    Whilst going through the final chapters of 'Coastal dawn' before sending them to the publisher.
    Question: Have some back ground material on this gentleman, UK schooling, early RAF flying prior to joining 236 Blenheim fighter squadron. As he was the only single member of Jamaica to fly in the Battle of Britain. Yet there seems to be little info:

    He flew with Sqn Ldr Peter Drew in July completing his first 'op' on the 21st, with Drew. He then move to F/O 'Bill' Moores crew in August 1940 at St Eval.

    Does anyone have any more info on his flights/sorties during the BofB with 236 Squadron ?

    Yours faithfully,

    Andy Bird
