    Default Sl john morton littler raf 39884

    Hello again,
    I have an interest in SL John Morton Littler. Took SSC in 5-7-37 with 33 sqn, As a FL on 33 sqn flew in Greece then Egypt scoring claims on 11-12-40, then on 2-4-41. He was CO on 276 sqn until the end of December 1943.
    Where was he posted to until the end of the war. Any help would be most helpful. He retired as a WC(?) on 1-1-61.
    Many thanks,
    Roy

    RAF Lasham closed in 1948, so he didn’t retire from there. Try Odiham or Farnborough?
