    Default Flight Lieutnant James B. Sanders : 23 - 30 May 1940

    Hello,

    While looking for information on No.615 Squadron during the Campaign of France, I found the mention that, Flight Lieutnant James B. Sanders would have participated in the evacuation operations of Dunkirk with a Flight on Gloster Gladiator (with other pilots of No.615 Squadron ???).

    According to Christopher Shores (Aces Hight) and Norman Franks (Dowding's Eagles), the detachment, based in Manston, would have operated between 23 and 30 May, with No.604 (RAF) Squadron.

    Would anybody have any additional details related to activities of this Flight ? If someone has access to No.604 Squadron ORB, does it contain any mention of this Flight ?

    Thanks,

    Regards,
    Alexis.

    Hi Alexis, yes the attachment is mentioned there but no evacuation operations, for example F/Lt Sanders recorded following flights:

    26.5. F/Lt Sanders Gladiator WP 10:3? - 11:45 Gladiator patrol
    28.5. F/Lt Sanders Gladiator WP 07:25 - 09:10 Gladiator patrol
    28.5. F/Lt Sanders Gladiator WN 14:00 - 15:00 Gladiator patrol
    29.5. F/Lt Sanders Gladiator WN 17:00 - 18:50 Gladiator patrol

    If you want more, pls contact me via email.
