    Default F/lt J Bisbey 617 Sqn??

    Hello Iím wondering if anyone could shed some light on this officer J Bisbey service no 573779 , though that maybe a post war service number as I believe he stayed in for a while post war , I am told he flew on 617 Sqn later on in the war does anyone have a list off Sqn members?? That could confirm that?
    i also believe he was on 21 and 57 sqns , Thankyou for any help ,Nick.

    Nick,

    Some years back, the No. 617 Sqn ORB was transcribed and placed online:

    It's searchable but I do not see a "Bisbey"

    Regards,

    Dave
