    Default Dinghy Drop: 279 Squadron RAF 1941-46

    I have recently discovered that Danish F/L Henning Pedersen served No. 279 Sqn from March 1944 to Oct. 1944.

    Would anyone know if the above mentioned book has any information on Pedersen during this period?

    TIA,

    Hi Mikkel

    A quick look in the index shows a number of mentions.

    I have a contact e-mail for the author, if you need it as I produced the 'colour' profiles in the book.

    Hi Mikkel,

    It is my book. Pedersen is mentioned around nine times between pages 59 and 115. Hope you find it interesting.

    Thank you Tom. I'm sure I'll find it interesting. Until recently I had only information of Pedersen serving No. 489 Squadron.

    Happy New Year
