    Default Syerston Base ORB

    I am collecting information on 61 Sqn Lancaster operations and I am wondering if anyone has the Syerston Base ORB 1 Dec 40 3 Dec 43 Air 28/798 plus Syerston Base ORB Appendix 1 Sep 42 to 30 Jun 43 Air 28/1177.

    Hi Ken

    Syerston wasn't a Base Station until 1 Oct 1944 when it became No 56 Base, prior to that it had been a Sub-Station of No 51 Base from 21 Nov 1943. Whilst 61 Sqn was based these it was a Station not a Base.
