    Default Nos.15 and 622 Squadrons Help Sought

    An appeal to No.15 and 622 Squadron experts.

    Henry Tilson (J7343, 1921 - ?), DSO, DFC served in No.15 Squadron from approximately June 1942 to approximately November 1942 and No.622 Squadron, roughly February to July 1944. If anyone has access to the ORBs of these two units, I would appreciate information as to exact dates when he reported in (and units from which he reported) and when he was posted away (and where)..
