    Default "1 ASRF" ? 1 Air Sea Rescue Flight? August -Dec 1943

    I wonder if any one has had need to look at the ORB of whats called on a man service record, 1 ASRF.

    He was posted there from 458 Sqn on that date per his service file.

    1 (North Africa) Air Sea Rescue Flight, Blida (ASR) AIR 29/888/6

    1 (North Africa) Air Sea Rescue Unit and 1 Air Sea Rescue Flight (ASR); formed at Bizerta (Tunisia) and part of 242 Group. Includes nominal rolls. With appendices AIR 29/449/6

    I wonder if any aircraft of theirs suffered a crash in Italy that Autumn?
