    Default Bernhorst Hermanus Botha 904883 (155758)

    Can anyone advise on where this pilot was stationed prior to being posted to 35 Squadron on 10th August 1944. The squadron ORB shows 156 Squadron (as currently shown on my website), but there does not appear to be any record of him being there. Another website suggests he earned his awards whilst serving with 50 Squadron, but again, I have struggled to find him in the ORB

    Any thoughts, pointers etc would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Check No.97 Sqn ORB - my computer is on the blink!
