    Default 20 OTU (Lossiemouth), spring 1944.

    Hi,

    I am looking after the complete name of the officer commanding the 20 OTU (Lossiemouth) in spring 1944. It is hard to decipher his sign but "Bellendry" could be an help.

    TIA

    Hello,

    The OC, No.20 OTU, Lossiemouth on 4th April, 1944, was: 37889 W/C Arthur Waite OLDROYD DFC, AFC. RAF. Doesn't look much like "Bellendry", to me!

    Hello,

    "Was it (No.20 OTU), still at Lossiemouth in April of 1944?"

    That's the location given by W/C OLDROYD in the copy of a letter that l have, dated 4th April, 1944.

    Bertrand,

    Thanks for the document.

    l'm afraid you have misread the form. The signature on the doc is not that of the Commanding Officer of 20 OTU (W/C Oldroyd), it is the signature of the person who signed it on his behalf, most likely his adjutant. ie Signed XXXXXXXX for Officer Commanding.

    Who is he? Sorry, can't help on that one.

    Col.
