    Default W/Cdr D.H.F Barrett

    Hi,

    Trying to find any details on this officer. the Oakington ORB has his serving with No.40 Squadron in Agust 1940. But in what capacity, I dont think he was the C/O at the time.

    Any pointers welcome.

    Steve,

    David's post on page 3 has your man (true surname Barnett, not Barrett) assuming command of No. 40 Squadron 3 June 1940. http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...n-wanted/page3

    Malcolm's site has an extensive bio: https://www.rafweb.org/Biographies/Barnett.htm

    Regards,

    Dave

    Hi Dave,

    I did checked my book on 40 Squadron!. The 218 ORB reffers to him as Barrett on two occasions.

    Thanks again.
