    Default S/L A. Zweigbergk

    Hello,

    Before taking over 1 Squadron in May 1943, do we know the squadrons Zweigbergk flew with?

    Thanks

    181 and 245 sqns at least.
    Britta A Von Zweigbergk wrote a book about him (Tony's War) so presumably some details in there about his RAF service.

    Excellent! Flying instructor before joining 181 was the missing part.

    Thanks to both of you

    Slight correction to Mojmir's post in respect of 1939. It's Central Flying School, RAF Upavon - there is no 'Downs' in the airfield's name.

    (I was a forecaster at Upavon in the 1960's.)
