    Hi Alain,

    At least two former pilots of 127 Sqn had books published:

    EAW Smith: Spitfire Diary (William Kimber, 1988)

    RWF Sampson: Spitfire Offensive (Grub Street, 1994)

    Numerous copies of both are available via Abebooks. Ted Smith's book includes elements of the ORB, and is an especially good read.



    Cheers,

    Bruce

    Alain

    I can confirm the information given above is what I have in my database of 127 Sqn Pilots.
    If you need any details on any of the list please ask. andy@127squadron.co.uk
    I have 2 pilots on my list of nearly 200 known 127 Sqn pilots that I don't have names for.
    Can anyone help?

    Flt Sgt CK Campbell (Possibly Charles Kenneth)
    F/O Turnbull

    Thanks

    Andy
