    Default OTU Lossimouth ?

    I understand that 20 OTU was formed at Lossimouth in May 1940, were there any other OTU's stationed there and what type of training would have taken place, would gunners have been trained at Lossimouth in June 1943?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Regards
    Peter

    Hi Peter

    No. 20 was the only OTU to use Lossie and flew Wellingtons to train night bomber crews. There was no seperate training unit there for gunners who would have done their training at Air Gunners School (No. 2 was a Dalcross if you are looking for a Scottish connection) before going to the OTU for crew up and training together as a crew.

    Cheers

    Eddie
