    Thanks for posting that information. Most helpful.

    A few years ago, there was an excellent site on 624 Sqn. Alas, now gone. Might be able to bring it up on WaybackMachine.

    AUS413485 Edmund Seymour Isaacs RAAF, who was your father's Nav 'B' at Abu Sueir on 30 April, 1945, reputedly flew 36 ops before moving on to 1675 HCU, not sure which unit he was was with.

    I had a look at the 624 Sqn ORB*. Your father's first op (as F/Sgt/2nd Dickie), with 624 Sqn appears to be on 18/19 March, 1944 in Halifax JN958, piloted by AUS413251 W/O George Francis Regan RAAF (later DFC & 1675 HCU). Does that sound right? His first op ("PUDDLEDUCK"), with his own crew appears to be on 26/27 March, 1944 in Halifax BB442.

    Thanks once again for filling a big gap in my files.
