    Default P/O Oliver Ogle Ormrod (Sonny)

    Pilot Officer Ormrod kept a diary of his time in the RAF with 605 Squadron, and later, having flown off the carrier Argus to Malta in November 1941, of his time on the island till his death there aged 20 in April 1942. Tragically his body was not found for 5 months after he had been shot down, presumably having baled out as his body was found on the roof of a house.
    I have seen quotes from the diary in the book 'The Siege Within The walls' is the full version available anywhere does anyone know ? Or where the diary may be held ?

    Hi Paul,

    as the first step I would suggest you to contact the author of mentioned book possibly through the publisher.
    If he used quotes from the diary he might me able to answer your question if the whole diary still exists and where it is located
