    Default Flt Sgt Ernest Townsend 1812237 Bomb Aimer

    Can anyone tell me what Squadron Ernest Townsend flew with towards the end of WW2. He apparently flew 11 Operations before the end.

    Sorry but I need a more reliable source than the interview.

    Hello Ken

    You can download the ORB of No. 61 Squadron from The National Archives, using the free download when registered user.

    Like Dave, I haven't listened to the interview, but reading the description, I'm inclined to think he flew his ops at the end of WW2.

    So, if you start from 1945 and go backwards in time, you should be able to built his tour of operations in compiling the form 541s.

    Hello Joss,

    The problem is he doesn't appear in the 61Sqn ORB, that is why the question.
