    Default Kew help requested, 62 Sqn ORB, info not visible from e-copy

    I have a copy of the 62 Sqn ORB for 1942 (AIR 27/583). From this I have transcribed the available record of operations for the Danish RCAF navigator, later S/L Meyer, cf.
    http://danishww2pilots.dk/sorties.php?person=185

    Unfortunately, for a number of operations, it is not possible to se the date of the flight from the electronic copy (or to deduce them from other information). I would think that it is possible with the actual book in the hand at Kew to se this.

    Would anyone be able to check this for me?

    The relevant operations are 4 operational and 2 non-operational sorties during May 1942, cf.

    and 2 non-operational sorties during June 1942, cf.

    I have now - with a degree of uncertainty - linked one of the sorties to 19 May 1942

    as it seems to be two days after P/O Corbett and crew went MIA, cf.
