    Default RAF Habbaniya ORB 1939-40

    Does anyone have a copy of the ORB for RAF Habbaniya for 1939-40, please?

    Sqn Ldr Ernest Alton Healy was posted from 203 (FB) Sqn to Habbaniya on 03 Feb 39. I have no further information that this line in the 203 Sqn ORB.

    His next posting was to 90 Sqn at Honnington on 24 Jul 40.

    Does someone have a copy of the ORB (poss AHQ Iraq ORB if separate) who could let me know whether he was posted to the strength of the Station or to another role, and how long he remained there?

    Thanks
