    Default Activities of 122 (Bombay) Sqdn Feb/Mar 1942?

    My grandfather was posted to No. 122 (Bombay) Squadron over the period February and March 1942.

    The Squadron was located at Hornchurch in Essex during this period.

    I would like to know what sort of action the Squadron would have been involved in over this period (eg sweeps or convoy patrols etc). And no, I don't have the log book.

    Also, what other Squadrons made up the Hornchurch Wing at this time?

    Thanks

    PS I will eventually be seeking a copy of the ORB for this period, but would appreciate some indicative information in the meantime.

    122 Squadron were doing sweeps but no contact with enemy aircraft until 24/4/1942. Wing seems to have been very fluid in 1942 with many squadrons moving in and out of Hornchurch.
