    Default AC2c J. G. Savin, died/killed ? 22nd October 1941, 797 Sqn(?)

    Hello,

    Seeking info on the death of AC2c J.G.Savin, date given is 22nd October, 1941.
    Squadron is given as 797.

    https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/c...james-gilbert/

    797 Sqn FAA was not existing in 1941. So was there an RAF squadron with that number ?

    Thanks for any details

    He featured already on an unaccounted thread but this question didnt arise.

    Be better to try place answers on that old thread to avoid diluting it.

    Hi Alex

    It would have been 797 (Defence) Sqn at North Luffenham, which became No 2797 Sqn RAF Regiment in 1942
