    Default Service numbers Norwegian pilots 331 & 332 Squadron

    Dear all,

    I am looking for a source/site were I can find service numbers of Norwegian pilots of 331 and 332 Squadron. I've already checked the Squadron ORB's and ORB 132 Wing but with little success, unfortunately.

    Thanks in advance and stay safe!
    Hans

    Dear all,

    @ Alex: thanks for pointing that out, but the CWGC listings are limited to those buried at a CWGC cemetery. The KIA pilots from my list were re-interred in Norway, hence missing in the CWGC database.

    @ Chris: thanks also for the site references. The numbers are not their service numbers but represent some grave database numbering. Nevertheless great sites!

    Regards,
    Hans
