    Default Stanley Alfred Isham 151994

    I am researching the Service History of Fg Off Stanley Alfred Isham (151994) who was killed on 26/02/44 in Lancaster DV274 of 463 (RAAF) Squadron.

    Is anyone able to assist?

    Thanks - Adam

    Thanks Col.

    Does the ORB for 463 Squadron mention when Isham was posted to the Squadron? Is it likely that he arrived from with McKnight from an OTU?

    Hello,

    No mention in the ORB of when P/O Isham was posted in to 463 (RAAF) Sqn. Don't know if he was with P/O McKnight RAAF, when he was posted in.
