    Hello Pavel,

    According to my info Sgt Hinton came to the sdqn on 11/07/1944 from 60 OTU , he flew as navigator with F/Lt Enticott.
    P/O Burrows flew some missions with F/L Rix A V.

    Regards

    Just joined and stumbled on this thread. It might by of interest but I have a photocopy of Derek Hinton's flying logbook.

    Hello Alan,
    In regard to the two US men, have you a specific time frame for them ?
    If they were in the RAF before the US entered WW2 or was it later on ?.
    For those that I found had enlisted in the USAAF there were at least eleven B, F, MILLER's . First names were -
    Barton F ; Benjamin F ( two ); Bowdoin F; Bert, F; Bertil, F ; Boyd, F ; Boyda, F ; Bradford, F ; Byron, F ; Bruce, F .
    Their enlistment dates were 42,43,44 and 45. The later dates may well indicate their transfer from RAF to US forces ?

    There were twenty two named Chipman.

    From what I found in the 605 Sqn docs on line.

    Tech/Sgt. V, J, Chipman with F/Sgt. H, V, Morrison, RNZAF flew ops in "UP- G" and "UP-F" in April 1944.
    I believe that "UP-F" was HJ784.

    F/Lt. B, F, Miller with F/O. J, C, Winlaw, RCAF flew ops in "UP-U" and also "UP-O" and the "new" "UP-Q" at a time when the two "Q"'s went on the same op.
    "UP-U" was I believe HJ775.

    Hi

    Just to clarify there was no Tech/Sgt in the RAF/RNZAF, if it was written as T/Sgt this would have been Temporary Sergeant

    Hello Malcolm,
    CHIPMAN and MILLER were not RAF as I understand it, and the Tech Sgt is shown in the ORB, that I looked at.
    CHIPMAN's number two, MORRISON, was RNZAF.
    MILLER's number two WINLAW was RCAF .
