    Default P/O A.H. Delorie, RCAF, No.158 Squadron

    P/O Albert Henry Delorie, RCAF, a navigator in No.158 Squadron, was awarded the DFC, 25 May 1945. The recommendation stated he had flown 29 sorties, 9 August 1944 to 4 February 1945, (142 hours 22 minutes) and listed them. However, upon repatriation to Canada, he filled out a questionnaire and stated that he had flown 38 sorties, the last one on 2 March 1945. Can anyone with access to the ORB of No.158 Squadron advise me as to the dates, targets and flying times of sorties in which he participated, 5 February to 2 March 1945 ? Unfortunately I cannot supply the name of his captain (said name would be appreciated as well).
