    Default F/O George Hugo Formby Plinston (37419)

    F/O Plinston was posted from 1 Sqn to 607 Sqn some time in late 1939/early 1940. There is no mention of him arriving in the 607 Sqn ORB, the first reference to him being with the squadron is on 11/01/1940 when it records him being on patrol in Gladiator K7898 with members of B Flight.

    Can anyone with access to the 1 Sqn ORB confirm the date he was posted to 607 Sqn?

    Many thanks,

    Jim

    Does that come from the 1 Sqn ORB John? I think I have seen that date quoted on the Internet.

    Jim,

    Could suggest searching the online version of the ORBs from the National Archives. Go to https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/, enter the squadron number in the search box and wade through the sequence.
