I am currently researching a member of 656 AOP Sqn, L/Sgt J T Taylor Royal Artillery who joined 656 when it was formed in Dec 1942 as a Gunner, he served with the sqn throughout the war in Burma and later in SE Asia before being demobbed in Dec 1946.
Does anybody have a copy of the 656 ORBs as I am trying to establish what his role was within the Squadron and see if he is mentioned by name atall? I suppose there is a small chance that he flew on one or two operations as an Observation Post assistant in Austers. I understand that the pilots/Observation Officers were commissioned officers but did they carry passengers or radio operators?
