    Default Free French at 9 and 13 OTU

    Hello
    I’m looking for information about 3 Free French pilots who were sent to 9 and 13 OTU at the beginning of 1944.
    If anybody have the ORB of these units, I’m interesting by the date of arrival and departure and of any particular events.
    Pilots concerned were:
    -Louis Jaffré and Joseph Houriez at 13 OTU
    -George Torrès at 9 OTU, KIFA on April 16th 1944

    Sorry for my bad English.
    Thanks in advance.

    Houriez (30107) and Jaffré (30145) posted to 13 OTU mid feb 1944 - end of April 1944.

    Houriez and Jaffre posted to n°342 sqdn on 1/5/44.Their first ops flight with Groupe Lorraine were on 11 may 1944.

    Hello

    Thank you for your response.
    I was looking for precise date if available.
    Does anybody know the unit (AFU, OTU or squadron) where George Torrès was posted between August 1942 and October 1943?
    And the same question for Joseph Houriez between August 1941 and October 1943?
    He was probably supposed to be posted on Beaufighter Squadron after the 9 (C) OTU.
    I will probably buy the ORB for the 9 and 13 OTU.

    Thanks
