    Default 35 Squadron 1939-1940

    Hello

    Does any forumite has No. 35 Squadron O.R.B. for the period 1939 to April 1940 ? On 8th April 1940 the Squadron was merged into No. 17 O.T.U., for which I have the O.R.B.

    I'd like to check is LAC Charles Scott TORRANCE, a wireless operator air gunner, was a member of the Squadron during that time frame, according to a paper found on his body. He was later (date unknown) posted to No. 110 Squadron in April / May 1940. He was killed in action on 22nd May 1940, and I'm organising a plaque for his crew.

    TIA

    The squadron ORB for that period is very sparse and there are very few names mentioned, other than those involved in accidents. There is no mention of Torrance from 1st January 1939 to 30th March 1940.

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]

    Hello

    Thanks Pete for checking. I think that the only way to know would be to get his record of service.

    Regards
