    Default George Herbert Livingston - 206 Sqn

    Passing on request from 206 Sqn Association:

    Looking for information about George Herbert Livingston who was on 206 Sqn establishment at start of war in 1939 as a Sgt navigator. He was a crew member of a Hudson that ditched with captain T Keenan. He was commissioned and completed pilot training. Did he stay with 206 after commissioning? Was he a SNCO pilot before commissioning?

    TIA.
