    Hi Richard,

    Many thanks, Braithwaite and Furey I had.

    I've got Broomfield as doing a tour with 462 Sqn RAAF in the Middle East for which he was awarded a DFM around September 1943. Did he do a second tour with 419 Sqn?

    Regards,

    John.

    Hello John. Mistake on my part. Broomfield did 3 ops with 408 Sq in April 1943 before going to 462 Sq.
