Squadron Leader Ernest Ryan Benson DSO DFC & Bar - can anyone help? I have been researching my late Fatherís wartime service as a navigator in the RAF at 99 Squadron, 23 OTU Pershore (as Station Navigation Officer) and 109 Squadron. I have managed to find 138 of his 145 ops, as verified on his recommendation for the DSO, from the ORBs of the above. As I do not have his logbook I have no way of finding the remaining 7 ops.

If anyone has any information, or clues as to the whereabouts of this log book, I would be very grateful. I have already checked at the RAF Museum at Hendon and the National Archives. I am also aware that many logs books were destroyed in the 1960ís.
