    Default 60 Sqn ORB Prior to 1936

    Does anyone have any gen on the 60 Sqn ORB prior to 1936, please? A search of the NA catalogue suggests that they have no Air 27 ORB prior to 1 Feb 36.

    To be specific, I have a man who was posted to 60 Sqn on 16 Oct 1931, but I cannot establish the accuracy of the date or the length of his tenure: 22079 Flt Lt Geoffrey Charles STEMP.

    Thanks

    Steve,

    AFLs confirm his arrival on 60 Sqn as 16 Oct 1931. The squadron history gives his date of departure as January 1935. I know nothing of ORBs for the Squadron, but do have the log books of Flt Lt E.A.C. Britton who arrived on the squadron with Stemp. You are probably aware that Stemp retired as a Group Captain with a CBE.
