    Default Officers commanding RAF Station Hemswell

    Hello!
    I am looking for the names of Officers commanding RAF Station Hemswell in a period while polish bomber squadrons were stationning there: between July 1941 and March 1944.
    I know that among them were G/Cpt Arthur Wray and G/Cpt Henry Cozens.
    Were there any other Officers?
    What might be the dates of their commanding?

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.
    Regards,
    Gregory

    Hi Gregory

    I don't have exact dates but Wray was there 1940-1942 and Cozen's 1942 - Dec 1943. Both cofficers have biographies on my website - www.rafweb.org

    Thank you Malcolm, your page was the first one I just have checked :)
    G/Cpt Wray used to fly some sorties with squadrons stationed on commanded Station. The last his sortie is recorded in 300 Sqn ORB in October 1942.
    G/Cpt Cozens started flying with 300 Sqn since May 1943.
    I suppose that they exchanged their duties between those dates.
