    Default Paulson Manitoba

    I am researching a close friend's father Flt Lt Kenneth Hurrey DFC DFM and in a previous post received some very useful info. I have now seen his log books and from 7th Sept to 2nd Oct 1942 he was at Paulson Manitoba training and from 1st - 30th November 1942 he was at London Ontario log signed by C/O 4 A.O.S He then went to No 10 OTU, 1652 HCU and then on to 51 Sqn where he flew 30 missions but credited with 27 1/2. Any help, particularly with the Canadian units would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    As a start point:

    The postings in Canada relate to his trade training and the ones in the UK relate to his operational training.

    No 7 Bombing and Gunnery School was at Paulson.

    No 10 Operational Training Unit was at Abingdon and No 1652 Heavy Conversion Unit was at Marston Moor [Source RAFFT&SU]

    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]
