    Default S/l S.h. Hardy

    Hello,

    Does anyone know more about Squadron Leader S.H. HARDY, fighter pilot. This officer was already S/L in September 39 and seems not to have participated to the Battle of Britain.
    His first names would be very appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Phil

    I concur with Dennis that this is the chap.

    He is listed as having completed a specialist Engineer course so possibly ground based rather than flying in the BoB.
