    Default ORB 122 (Bombay) Sqdn Feb/Mar 1942?

    My grandfather had a short stint with No 122 (Bombay) Squadron during Feb/Mar 1942 (for 2 weeks of this he was posted sick to Catterick Military Hospital for unknown reasons).

    Where was the Squadron based at this time?

    I was seeking the form 540s and 541s for this Squadron during this period to ascertain the Squadron's activities and whether my grandfather flew operationally during this time (log book is missing).

    I was hoping to avoid dealing with UK Archives on this based on several threads discussing funding/service cuts, even though I had previously had good success on obtaining the ORB for selected dates for 61 OTU.

    Thanks Peter. I had completely forgotten about those pages!

    And I have never heard of 'Scorton' for an RAF airfield.
