    Default Path Finder G/C John Woodroffe

    I am researching the two 5 Group raids on Konigsberg on 26th/27th and 29th/30th August 1944.I have the ORBs for most of the squadrons involved including 83 Squadron PFF and 97 Squadron which was also marking the target. My understanding is that the Controller/Master Bomber/MC was G/C John Woodroffe but I am unable to locate any record/ORB for him. I understand that quite a few Controllers were not permanently affiliated to a particular squadron. The citation for his DSO puts him with 61 Squadron but he must have moved on by the time of the Konigsberg raids. Any ideas as to where he was at this time and where I can find any records? Kind regards - Mike
