    Default E.C.Hibbins-433 Squadron?

    Has anyone come across a E.C.Hibbins?(Possibly Eric Charles)
    I beleive he flew in 433 squadron and I am looking for details of the rest of the crew that he flew with.

    Hi Linda

    Probably not your man but a Edward Charles Hibburt spent time with 51 and 35 Sqns before being killed with 158 Squadron on 27/3/43 (which was before 433 was formed of course)

    Cheers

    Linda. EC. Hibbins seem to fly as a spare at the start of his stay with 433 Sq. Later he did most of his ops with S/Ldr Wib Pierce.

    Thanks Eddie but Richard has got the one!
    Thanks Richard.
    I wondered if he had a connection with the Pierce crew.
    I visited the Yorkshire Air Museum a few weeks ago and came across him and wanted to double check.
    He has a "S" on his breast pocket,which is?
