    Thanks for posting that material. You certainly have put the cat among the canaries as far as the 19th April, 1944, is concerned. I don't have access to the 28 Squadron ORB, but would be interested in hearing what others have to say on the matter.

    Would you consider placing some of your grandfather's photos/log pages on our site? Jagan (Admin), should be able to help you out there.

    No problem. I am actually going to digitise the whole log book but will take me some time as there are thousands of hours of flying logs in there. I will then attempt to put it online somewhere and I can let you know. Would be keen to get the 28sqn photo uploaded here but I can't see a way of adding it to the thread.

    28 Squadron ORB appendices has monthly returns of pilots listed from April 44 onwards. - and you are right , there is only one Garratt - R J Garratt, joining the squadron on 28.10.42 - Service Number 136551 . Posted out 14.5.44

    Can you email the images to admin AT rafcommands DOT com ? I can have them uploaded to the website's image hosting system.

    The correct date now is 4.1.43 and it was from No.2 Squadron, as our Database shows.
