    Default 55 O.T.U. Stanley Grant ?

    Hello
    I believe Stanley Bernard Grant the Battle of Britain pilot and later Malta pilot was an instructor with 55 OTU during 1941. Is anyone able to confirm that please? And if possible what please were the dates when he started and finished there?
    Thanks

    Default 55 otu

    Hi
    Thanks for that.
    I have a combat report down loaded from TNA with him flying with 65 squadron again in August 1941. I assume he must have left 55 OTU by then, he would not fly for the OTU and a squadron would he ?
    Regards

    Hi Paul

    I had his 55 OTU entry in the wrong place, he joined 65 sometime in 1940, then went to 55 OTU and returned to 65 as a Flt Cdr in August 1941 before taking command of 601 in December.
