    Default 153 Squadron - A.E.T. Newman

    Family of above have been refused BC bar for lack of evidence. Air Gunners Association have him on 153 Squadron probably after move to Scampton in October 1944. Can anyone with the ORB please confirm his prescence on the squadron.

    John,

    Does the family have his service record? If he was with 153 Squadron that would provide the necessary proof - and perhaps identify other squadrons.

    Surely, those people responsible for awarding the BC Bar, can check themselves, with the RAF PMA. Why leave it for relatives to find proof. I had H.J. Flowers, A/G with 50sqdn, asking if i could forward him pages from the 50sqdn ORB, for him to send for proof, before they sent him his bar. Bloody farce !!!
