    W/O D.E. Helmore was posted to 137 Squadron flying Typhoons in Feb 1945 and remained with them until the Squadron was disbanded. One source gives his name as 'Derek Eastman Helmore' and there is only one 'D.E.' in AIR 78, so it must be him.

    Is it possible that he completed an earlier tour on bombers, then remustered to fly single-seaters?

    Hi

    My Grandfather was George Eric Helmore and he was posted as a Sgt Pilot to 78 Sqn in Oct 41

    I have a copy of his service record and a few other things, but have slowly been trying to piece together his service history.

    Regards

    Many Thanks - That sorts out another mystery - I love this queries which eventually get answered years later by googling family members - but < 1 Month is a record!
