Hello everyone

A quick question - the 77 Sqn ORB for July 25th 1942 has the following entry:

Whitley V Z9462 KN-Y

Anti-submarine patrol
R.A.F. Chivenor
Up: 12.05

Down: 22.00
P/O CANE, E.
P/O SMITH, C. E.
Sgt. WHITE, R. J.
Sgt. CURRY, G.
F/Sgt. GREEN, R. C. (Ground)
Sgt. WHITE, E. A.

P/O CANE was detailed for patrol, aircraft carrying 6 x 250lb Torpex depth charges, and 4 x 250lb A/S bombs. S/E not carried.


Does anyone know what '(Ground)' could signify...?

Regards

Simon
