    Default Sub Lt Spademan

    This is a long shot but does anyone have the full name of the above member of the FAA, attached to 90 Squadron/220 Squadron detachments at Shallufa, Egypt early 1942?
    Thanks and regards:

    Only one Spademan appears in the LG for the war, for the RN:

    Philip Reginald Spademan

    He is also listed as an officer on the aircraft carrier HMS Glory in 1953.

    Could be your man

    Sorry Robert, must have tapped the wrong key!!!!

    As far as I can make out, 90 Sqn only had detachments at Shallufa from 1948 to 1950.

    Cheers,

    Thanks to you all. Never thought to look at the LG! I'll do my own search based on your input, Amrit. Spademan is listed in the ORB as FAA, RN.

    90 Squadron had a detachment of Fortress Is at Shallufa from November 1941 until it became 220 Squadron Detachment on Feb 1, 1942.

    Thanks again and regards:

    Robert
