More help needed re: the above please, if anyone can help.

The 100 Squadron PORs show him as being posted to 205 Squadron on the 30th of April 1941. I believe 205 were in the process of converting from Singapores to Catalinas at the time. Does anyone have the 205 Squadron ORB and would mind having a look through it to shine some light on his time with the squadron for me please?

I believe at some point he was hospitalised after a mosquito bite became infected and was one of the fellows who escaped being taken prisoner by the Japanese as he was evacuated out of Singapore to Australia on a hospital ship before the island fell.

Thanks in advance for anything anyone can offer.
