    Default A 10 Squadron crew?

    Can anyone confirm whether these men operated as a crew at 10 Squadron prior to their arrival at 35 Squadron in June 1943 or did they crew up on arrival at 35 Squadron.

    I know Compton was with 10 Squadron as it is mentioned in his DFM citation.

    GT Beveridge (Pilot)
    HC Billett (Navigator)
    SK Gordon-Powell (Bomb Aimer)
    RJ Taylor (Wireless Operator)
    W Hughes (Air Gunner)
    FC Compton (Air Gunner) DFM
    LE Carey (Flight Engineer)


    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Pete

    Default Beveridge and crew 10 Sqn

    I can confirm this crew were together at least in mid April of 1943 on 10 Sqn. Worth checking with the association perhaps.
    I will send you a message.

    Thanks very much for the information; I will certainly pursue it with the association now that I have a positive lead.

    Regards and thanks again
