    Default Newell Orton

    Hello all and first I wish you marry Christmas and happy New year!

    And I have two question about S/L Newell "Fanny" Orton.

    Does anybody know where and when he was born? In Shores Aces High is that Orton was from Warwick but on web I found that he was from South Africa.

    And in same book is that Orton was first pilot with Bar to his DFC, but he obtained this on July 1940 and Robert Voase-Jeff obtained his Bar on 4. June 1940.

    Does anybody have some info about this?

    Thank you for your help!

    Regards
    Michal
