    Default Looking For 168sqn (143wing 83 Group)eindhoven

    My grandad was with 168 sqn at Snailwell from 14/7/1944 to 4/10/1944 Eleven days later his sqn was posted in Eindhoven 15/10/1944 to 21/1/1945. My grandad was a Typoon pilot by the name of Thomas John Jones (Taffy) I have been trying to find any photos or pilots who were in the same squadron.... If any one knows anything that could help me, that would be great!!!!!!!

    Default 168 Sqn 1944

    Hello Lupo. If the dates you quote are correct (14/7/44 to 4/10/44), 168 Sqn was in Normandy, N.France, Belgium, equipped with Mustangs (fighter-recce version). The squadron arrived at B.78 Eindhoven on 4 Oct 44 where it re-equipped with Typhoons. It was only at Snailwell in June/July 1942 when it was formed (equipped with Tomahawks).

    I'm sending you an email re sources of further information.
