    Default No. 35 Squadron Personnel

    Does anyone have the service number / forenames of RF Owen (Pilot) who was posted from No. 58 Squadron to No. 35 Squadron on 24/02/1941?

    Regards

    One more that I am struggling with is HS Bradbeer. I have a service number of 805520 but can't find his forenames. Can anyone help on this one?

    Regards

    Simon,

    Bradbeer's aircraft was Halifax L9521 (not L9251). The second site you mention, is PeteT's/Pete Tresadern's own site!

    Thanks for the correct Halifax serial Col - I was watching the telly while replying!

    Didn't spot that the 35 Sqn site was Tony's, either - I reckon I should have looked at his signature...!!

    Thanks for the responses.

    I have made a start on including the composition of each of the crews on the No. 35 Squadron site but the early crews were mainly Sergeants (with the squadron using specially trained fitters as Flight Engineers), so finding service numbers and forenames is proving a challenge .... so any help is always welcome

    Regards

    Pete
