    Default Bomber Command personnel from Belgium, France, Rhodesia and South Africa

    Hi,

    I am searching for flyers who took part in the Dusseldorf raid on 11./12.6.1943 who originally came from Belgium, France, Rhodesia and South Africa. Just looking into the ORBs does not help, so I wonder if there is another way to find these kind of flyers.

    Does anyone have an idea how I can find such persons in other records?

    Thanks.

    Best wishes.

    Marcel

    Marcel: If these details are not recorded in the ORBs, I have no suggestions, unless there is an “Order of Battle” in the ORB appendices somewhere. The RCAF Bomber Command squadrons commenced detailing the “Order of Battle” separate from the Form 541 beginning in November 1944. See below:
