    Does anybody know the full name of S/Ldr T.D. Misselbrook who commanded 'B" Flight in 300 (Polish) Bomber Squadron in a period between June and September 1944?

    Grexx,
    There is a Theodore Dudley Misselbrook (RAF 42353) who might be your man? Born 7 Dec 1912. Gets to Sqn Ldr. Gets a DFC whilst with 101 Sqn (Alieneyes may know more about this?). Died in 1998.

    Thank you Peter!
    He may be the same person.
    In ORB 300 Sqn he is enlisted as: F/Lt a S/Ldr T.D. Misselbrook DFC.

    There shouldn`t be so many airmen with the same (quite rare) name who were awarded DFC.
