    Default 115 Squadron, Flying Offiver Michael Greene

    We have been looking into the service reords of my wife's father Micheal Gerard Greene. We have obtained details of his service record (summarised below). He spent a lot of time training in Canada before returning dates. We are slowly tracking down details of what he did there.

    Enlisted 3/11/1941 record shows him as A/C2 Assigned to various crew and training centres
    Promoted to LAC after a year.
    Sent to Canada as part of Draft 8100 4/8/43
    Arrived at 31 PO 10/9/43 then on to
    33 ANS (assumes is means Air Navigation School) and then
    2 Wireless school
    Finally to 7 B&G Paulson (bombing and gunnery)
    Discharged 4/5/44 KR 652/14 - promoted to P/O returned to U.K.
    On return after passing through various personnel reception centres he
    Was sent to 26OTU Area 92 20/2/44
    Then 74 Base Area 7 from 11/5/44 (possible No 74 Base Marston Moor
    Then 71 Base Area 7 from 24/5/45 ( no 71 Base Lindholme)
    Onto 115 Squadron from 10/7/45 (Graveley, No 8 Group)

    Would anyone be able to help identify which Orbs to check for his time at the OTU and 115 Squadron. Some of the dates may not be completely accurate as they have been take from copies of his record which are not totally clear.

    thanks

    Just to advise that No 115 Squadron became operational at RAF Graveley on 10th September 1945, so your "07" date may be "09"

    Regards (and good luck with your research)

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]
