    Hello

    I know your uncle was an observer and Storrow was a pilot. I only meant that your uncle flew with P/O ARDERNE as pilot, but he also flew operations with other pilots. For example, he flew 6 missions in May 1940 with Sgt Gandy as his pilot, and 3 different Wireless operators air gunners.

    He flew with Flight Sergeant Storrow on 20th June 1940, for a raid against Schipol aerodrome, and I'd be interested to know if you have any details about this pilot, a mention in a log-book or a diary.

    Sorry the only other 2 pilots I know he flew with was a pilot named Charles Darwin Stenner 106 squadron.,when George went on his last mission June 42 Stenner was sent on another mission and replaced by a pilot named P.J.Worswick so Stenner had a lucky escape...

    Hello

    I just can't tell what the AIR 81 would contain. There's another thread about this new series open at Kew, and we have discussed on the content of the files, which differs from one to another. Either you can go and check by yourself, or you can ask for an estimate for a copy.

    Hi Zorglub,

    As fraser48 has not been online here since 2014, your best bet might be to email him.

    His email address is on his profile.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Thank you Dave but for some reason I have no access to his profile . Maybe he would appreciate more details about the lost Blenheim .
