    Default F/O Schalburg in ASR service

    Flying Officer Ernst Schalburg (RAFVR, 115513) states in an interview to a Danish newspaper in 1968 that he is attached to a unit carrying out air sea rescue operations on the Channel from small motor vessels.

    I am no expert in ASR operations, but where would one start a further investigation into this? Would these units indeed be RAF as indicated and would they have ORBs or the like?

    He is the father of C.P.E. Schalburg that I started a thread on yesterday.

    I'm no expert on ASR units either.
    There does appear to be ORB's at the NA in Kew for the various units.
    They start in AIR 29/441

    There is quite a bit of info in the book 'The RAF Air Sea Rescue Service 1918-1986'
