    According to 'RAF Squadrons - Jefford', the above correct except 233 should be 223 Sqn.

    Thanks cyflyer1


    223 Sqn From 45 Sqn Detachment 15 December 1936

    I can't see 29 Sqn though as it was mainly 1 seat Fighter then 2 seat fighter

    Kind Regards paul

    No 35 Squadron utilised the Fairey Gordon for training and operational use from July 1932 to October 1937, both in the UK and in Sudan (Abyssinian Crisis)
    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]
