    Default No. 7 Squadron RAF ORB 1940-41

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if anyone could check for me the above mentioned ORB for S/L GRAHAM Henry Rudolph 32 009 who came to No. 7 Squadron after service with 311 Sq (08/40 till some date before 04/41).

    TIA

    Hi Pavel

    Graham arrived at 7 Sqn from HQ Bomber Command where he had been the Navigation Staff Officer since October 1941, prior to which he was the Group Navigation Officer at No 3 Group.

    Hi Pavel

    According to my research I haven't found him with 311 Sqn, so if you find he was I would be interested.

    His biography (so far) is on my site - http://www.rafweb.org/Biographies/Graham_HR.htm

    All the best

    Hi Malcolm, what a surprise! I was never thinking he got to the so high position...

    As you already have there he got the Czechoslovak Military Cross 1939 and this was for the help during formation of 311 Sq.

    As far as I was able to find out he served as a NAV instructor and also A Flight CO 08/40-before 04/41
    He also flew 1 sortie on 26.9.40

    Hi Pavel

    Unfortunately I don't have documents covering the period in question hence why I haven't found a posting to 311.
