    Default Leonard Graves & Leonard Yeomans, No. 107 Squadron 1940

    Hello,

    I'm looking for any details about Leonard Graves, DFC, (NCO service number 561720, officer service number 44464), who was an observer, and Leonard Yeomans DFM (NCO service number 532424, officer service number 45190), a wireless operator air gunner. They flew together with pilot Flight Lieutenant (then) Gareth Thomas Butler "Tubby" Clayton, DFC & bar, much later C.O. of No. 576 Squadron.

    both survived WW2.

    Yeomans seems to have originated from Glasgow, I found a page online from the Glasgow Herald about his DFM.

    I'm especially looking for access to their log-books for May 1940, as they flew Blenheim IV L9391 for 3 ops, and that was the Blenheim in which Sir Basil Embry and his crew were shot down on 27 May 1940. I'm trying to find the individual letter for a plaque project, in the village of Eperlecques, where Embry's WOpAG Geoffrey Edward Lang is buried.

    Thanks in advance

    Joss

    Hello Joss,
    BCL vol 1 edition 2 even does not give the letter.
    Good luck

    hello

    I know ! Access to log-book of the very few airmen who flew it seems to be my last option.
