    Default 45 Squadron Malaya

    This is a Post War question so I hope I don't upset any members.

    Do any members know if there is an ORB surviving for 45 Squadron in 1948/1949? I am keen to find out more about the kind of work they were undertaking, and have looked on the PRO website but can only find ORBs covering WW2 and the 1950s. Does this suggest that the ORB for 1948/49 covering Malaya is missing?

    Any help at all would be great,

    Johnnie

    Johnnie,

    You need to read the book: "The Flying Camels" by Jeff Jefford. This book is probably the best squadron history you will find and it is A4 (approx.) hardback with 535 pages packed with information, tables etc. It even shows all that's left of Jefford's Canberra after it went off the end at Kuantan!!!

    Many thanks for the help with this.

    I've downloaded the ORB so will go through that tonight.

    I'll support Colin in the recommendation of The Flying Camels. It's excellent.
