Crews starting 1943

Listed below are the Pilot’s names of the crews who started Operational duties with the Squadron in 1943.

As I have noted in the main section of this menu item, an indicates at least one fatality in the crew, although sadly, it is usually more. In some cases, a fatality might not be associated with an Operation, however it still relates to a member of the listed crew. I would also note that, owing to the regular drafting in of airmen from other crews – for whatever reason – there may be occasions where a recorded fatality of an individual is not with their normal crew. In time, this will be noted and cross referenced between the relevant crews.
