    Default No.428 RCAF Squadron Divert

    Hi,

    On March 6th 1945 two aircraft 'K' and 'L' landed at RAF Chedburgh at 02:02 and 02:09 hours. Looking for the skippers names and serials of the aircraft.

    Thank you

    J/11313 Arthur Lee Googe.

    Can't find Campbell. The ORB states he was posted to 405 Sqn w.e.f. March 17th 1945 - see image 145.
