    Hi Phill,

    ORB lists 22 aircraft despatched but only records serial, code letter, captain name, duty, time up/time down, operating from and on some entries only a few extra words of note.

    No expansion of crew names.

    Regards
    Ross

    Hi Phill,

    Given the number of aircraft used and that two aerodromes were used to allow all the aircraft to be bombed up and despatched I would say it would be highly likely.

    Even more likely if he was near the end or mid course in May/June.

    Regards
    Ross
