    Default 50 Squadron late 1941 early 1942

    Has any member a particular interest in 50 Squadron with access to the ORBs at the changeover from Hampdens to Manchesters.
    I would like to trace a Rear Gunner Sgt KGR Johnson to find out if he managed any sorties with 50 Squadrons Hampdens before flying in the Manchester when he became a POW 8 May 1942.
    Thank you for looking at my post.

    Colin,
    From the crew shot down, Avery, Broadhead, Solomon and Johnson were all posted in on 6th April 42, none completed any Hampden ops. This was the ninth op for Johnson with 50sqdn.

    Alan.
    Thank you kindly for this information Johnson had a very short run of operations.
    Can I trouble you to advise if his posting in was identified at all - I know Squadron ORBs can vary greatly with detail.
    With that small number of sorties I think I will get the copies before next month when they rise again having seen the recent post on the forum.
    Once again thank you for your help.
