    Default Who is this the Major Pimberton ?

    Hi,


    Who is this Major Pimberton ?

    According to the war diary of Groupement de Chasse 22 close to Toul in november 1939.

    8 november 1939 : Liaison du major Pimberton commandant le Wing de Hurricane de Vassincourt en vue d'une coopération franco-britannique de chasse.

    Vassincourt is the home of the n°1 sqdn and is there a relation between Pimberton and n°1 sqdn ?

    TIA

    I don't know if this helps, but I know that No. 35 Squadron had a Pemberton amongst it's WWI personnel, so that may be the family name you are looking for.

    A quick google on that name brings up a few links (some in French), but you may already have that information.

    Regards

    Pete

    Hi Bertrand

    There was a Sqn Ldr (equivalent rank to Major) D A Pemberton promoted on 1 Apr 1939, who could be your man and he was OC, No 1 Sqn from May 1940.

    Thanks Pete and Malcolm for the correct spelling of S/L David Alwyne Pemberton.

    A quick search on google gives KIA on 3/11/40 but there is nothing in the book of Fighter Command Losses 39-41 for this date.
