    Default S/L E.J. GEORGE 19234 - OC 66 Sqn

    Morning All,

    I'm looking for details about this pilot. I was unable to find his first names in LG, neither his subsequent career. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Phil

    Thanks Col, my mistake was his service number, but AFL 1945 is almost illegible for him.
    Seems that we already talked about this officer previously in this forum. What it is would be new is that this officer was commanding 66 Sqn when war broke out since August actually. He was posted out on 9 April 1940 to RAF Duxford so his promotion to Wing Commander in June is logical.
