    Default ORBs 8, 33 & 39 Squadrons

    Can anyone help me with the following ORBs that mention GD pilot Edward John GEORGE, 19236.

    No. 39 Sqn Jun 1926-Dec 1927 RAF Spittalgate/Spittlegate (Pilot Officer - aircraft unknown)
    No. 33 Sqn Oct 1931-Oct 1932 RAF Bicester? (Flying Officer - Hawker Harts)
    No. 8 Sqn Oct 1932-Nov 1934 RAF Khomaksar (Flight Lieutenant - Fairey IIIFs)

    I can offer ORBs for 76 (Bomber) Sqn from Sep 1916 to Jul 1942 which cover the squadron reforming with Wellesleys in 1937. 1953 to Dec 1960 which cover the nuclear cloud sniffing years with Canberras and No. 76 Conversion Flight 1942 covering the converting to the heavy Halifax. And other 'little gems' such as a list of all the illustrated Sqn & Unit etc. reports in the 1925-1945 'Flight' written by the veritable Major F.A. de V. Robertson, V.D. (some useful, some useless)

    Thank you

    Norman
