    Default No. 102 Squadron (JL Lee Crew)

    I have a crew, captained by JL Lee, that was posted to No 35 Squadron in March / April 1943.

    The five posted in were: Lee (JL), Jones (GA), Underwood (JN), Traynor (FM) and Mather (RM). Information suggests that the other two crew members remained with 102 Squadron.

    Do you have any details of their posting in / out dates and or their operational service with No. 102 Squadron

    Your usual help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    Thanks for the feedback. Can you just confirm whether Mather flew on 27th March operation (as he is not listed for that one) ..... I just need to double check on this as he is the person that I am currently researching so I would like to get his op. numbers correct for the family.

    Regards

    Pete

    Thanks Pete

    Is it possible to have your full name so that I can credit you in the document I send the family (send me a pm or e-mail if you don't want to publish on here)

    Regards
