    Default 27 otu orb

    Hi All,

    Does anyone have the ORB for 27 OTU around the time of 'The Thousand Bomber Raid'. I am interested in a crew who were shot down on the 'Thousand Raid' on Bremen on 25/26 June 1942. They were;

    P/O T F Lamb RCAF.
    Sgt J B Mathers RAAF.
    Sgt N H Cox RAAF.
    Sgt K H Poynting RAAF.
    Sgt J M Synnott RAAF.

    All KIA.

    Can anyone tell me if they were on any of the other 'Thousand Raids'?

    Cheers,

    John.

    Hi John,

    27 OTU put up 20 or 21 a/c for Cologne (summary says 21, details only shows 20). For Essen, summary shows 20, details 19. Sgt Synott flies to Essen in R1162 "J", F/Sgt. A.F.N. Taylor crew.

    There are class photos, dated 22/4/42, from No. 17 Course. Mathers, Cox and Poynting appear.

    Pages to your email addy?

    Regards,

    Dave
