    Default 466 RAAF Sqd Halifax HX 239 Crash-Landing

    Please does anyone have the ORB for No 466 RAAF Sqd that they would be able to look up for me Please.

    i am interested in the Crew that were on board Halifax HX 239 when it Crash-landed when returning from Berlin on the Night of 28/29/1/44 , I would like to find out how many Ops this crew had flown together ?

    they were P/O DD Graham RCAF , F/S FC Cope RAAF , Sgt J Ellis RAF, P/O AF Studders RAAF , P/O MF Manning RAAF, P/O JC Robb, RAF , Sgt RE Catt RAF and P/O JM Cunningham RAAF .

    The Australians on board all were all later awarded the DFC as was Sgt J Ellis who was later Commissioned when did they arrive at 466 RAAF Sqd .

    Thanks to anyone who may be able to help .

    466 RAAF Sqn ORBs are digitised on the National Australia Archives website. Free access.

    Go to http://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/Searc...sicSearch.aspx and input keywords 466 Squadron

    In "Series No" column, scroll down and find A1986 - click on the pages symbol on right side of that row

    Cheers, David C.

    Phill - sorry to waste your time there - as you'll see using Col's link, the ref should have been A9186

    Cheers, David C.
