    Default Operational Record Books

    Hello,

    My father Sydney Alexander Grieve service number 155043 was a glider pilot on Operation Varsity, crossing the Rhine. I am trying to find more information from this operation particularly if there were any operational record books which my father may have completed or from other glider pilots who were on the same operation. I have access to another site 'Forces War Records' but have found it difficult to locate this information.

    If anyone could help with any information I would be very grateful.

    Thank you.

    Very misleading website as far as I can tell when it comes to RAF personnel.

    Do you have your fathers service record? If os, what unit does it list him being posted to at the time of the operation?

    You asked the very same question on 11 February (http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...e-Glider-Pilot) and I recommended then that you obtain his service record to find which unit he was flying with. Only you can access that information, and until it is to hand we cannot help you further.
