    Default 13 Squadron January 1943; 18 Squadron Feb-Mar 1943

    Researching my Uncle (James Anderson Mayne - flight sergeant) - I know he was a member of 13 Squadron from Jan 2/43 to Feb 4/43 when he joined the 18 Squadron until the time of his death March 30/43. Hoping to find out information about where he was, the operations he particated in ... anything to fill in the blanks. I have his RCAF record, and the letters he wrote home - but this information has created so many questions. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

    Thank you Alain. This helps a lot. Is there any way to find out what the missions were? I've been on the National Archives site and downloaded some info but it's not specific to the individual. Any hints, suggestions, are most appreciated. Thank you again.
