    Default Sgt William WILSON DFM

    Sgt Wilson served with 235 Sqn during the Battle of Britain and was later posted to 272 Sqn. Does anyone know how long he served with 272 Sqn and what were his subsequent postings.

    Best Regards

    Hello Andy,

    I have checked the 272 Sqn. ORB (AIR 27/1577) and found little trace of him. He seems to have flown his last recorded operational sortie (in a Blenheim) on 29 March 1941.
    There is no ORB for April 1941 and it only resumes on 24 May 1941 when the unit was preparing to move to the Middle East with Beaufighters. The F.541s for June to November 1941 do not record any Wilson.

    Regards,

    Martin Gleeson.
