    Default 98 Squadron

    Does anyone have any info regarding aircrew on 98 Squadron from 1942 to 1945? Mainly looking for Air Gunners. I know they were flying B25 Mitchells during this period.

    I know nothing about AGs on 98 Sqn but I have some info and a box of parts from the 98 Sqn Mitchell which crashed at Holly Farm, Wendling (Norfolk) on 30 Nov 1942. If there is a 98 Sqn collection/museum or someone with a passion for this unit I'd like to contact them.

    Regs,

    I have some of the Sqdn. ORBs for the 98 Squadron, is there anyone in particular you are looking for?

    BC1: I am in touch with David E. Poissant, Chairman of 2nd TAF Medium Bombers Association (Canadian Wing). David's father, the late Cy Poissant, did a Tour with 98 Sqdn. during the latter part of 1944.

    I've done considerable research on 2nd TAF and have the complete 98 Squadron Operations Record Books transcribed into Excel so it's easily searched; I'd like to help you. What information are you looking to uncover?
