    Default 58 Sqdn ORB's P/O Donald F.Walker pilot Whitley N1462

    Looking for the 58 Sqdn ORB's especially P/O D.F.Walker and crew. Donald Walker was the pilot of the Whitley and his a/c was shotdown in the night 17/18 June 1941 over Best,Holland.

    Regards,
    Adrian

    I have the 1941 ORB if you want to e-mail me (click on my user name for details).

    A quick look through suggests that his first sortie was on 2nd June, with others on 11th June and 15th June.

    He appears to have been posted into the squadron a lot earlier in the year, but not participated in operational sorties until June (but as I say, this was a very quick check for you)

    Regards

    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]
