    Hi Peter,
    Exactly what I needed..Fantastic thank you!
    He joined up very early then, between Dec 1940 and Aug 1941 he seams to have served with 149 Squdron (Mildenhall) ???

    can you confirm this at all ?

    Scott, Hi,
    No - can't confirm. That should come out of his Service Record.

    Default Are ORBS for 1657 HCU & 12 OTU accessible? XV Squadron Short Stirling III, BK699 LS-E

    This is my first post in RAF Commands- I hope it's clear and appropriate.
    I'm researching the service of my Great Uncle; John Condron and the rest of the crew of XV Squadron Short Stilring III, BK699, LS-E lost on 26/6/1943 over the Waddenzee.
    I've downloaded the relevant AIR 27, XV Squadron ORB's and am aware that sometimes crews took part in operational missions whilst at OTU's and HCU's in early 1943. I've been unable to find them in searches online. Do they exist and how do I find them?
    CREW OF BK699
    Flying Officer Maurice Chapman (pilot, 24, from London)
    Pilot Officer Robert Pavely (navigator, 22, from Richmond)
    Flying Officer Arthur Woodward (air bomber, 22, from Kelso)
    Sergeant John Condron (Wireless Operator/Air Gunner, 23 from the Rhondda Valley)
    Sergeant Terence Warbey (flight engineer, 22, from London)
    Sergeant Allen Smith (air gunner, 23 from Grimsby)
    Sergeant Donald Campbell (air gunner, 20, from Saskatchewan, Canada)
    I have photos of five of the crew, but not the pilot Maurice Chapman and navigator Robert Pavely, - does anyone have any suggestions as to finding them? Pavely in particular was an experienced aircrew member.
    Thanks in advance for help and suggestions
    Mark Condron

    Hi all, another long shot - anyone have photograhed following TNA reference pls?

    AIR 29/629/3
    303 Ferry Training Unit, formed at Stornoway, moved to Talbenny and renamed 11 Ferry Unit; later moved to Dunkeswell and joined 3 Aircraft Preparation Squadron to form 16 Ferry Unit. Part of Coastal Command then Transport Command (FTU FU UK). With appendices

    I am interested in period of 11 FU approx. April 1945 - November 1945.

    TIA
