    Default Sgt S Darbyshire Pilot No.199 Squadron

    Gents,

    The above pilot was posted onto No.199 Squadron in December 1943 / January 1944. His service number appears to be 1436081 however this does not appear correct.

    Any help with Christian name and service number very welcome.

    TIA

    That is the serial number on the 199 ORB. F/Sgt. S. Darbyshire posted from 623 Squadron wef 6/12/43 although he is later listed that month as Sgt. There was a Ken Darbyshire involved with the 199 Association a few years back so may be one and the same.
