Read this first!

I have recently looked to grow this section based on an expanded series of sets of information gathered through research. I am currently still compiling this so you will see that some sections in this menu set are currently empty – this is either because I have not yet filled it with the information I have, or because I currently do not have anything for a particular stage of Bob’s RAF career.

In laying out these sections, I had the choice of either only adding/ showing what I had, or defining all areas. I decided to show all areas, simply because someone might see a posting location and contact me about it, possibly with some information of their own.

Please bare with me – all this takes time, but I will get there eventually.

Currently, the latter stages of training have information – 11 OTU and 1651 CU and all raids listed have content in his first tour with 75(NZ) in 1943.

I have just started adding the initial ops flown by the Zinzan crew, prior to Bob’s return to the Squadron.

more to follow……

      Hi John
      Many thanks for contacting me – I put an obvious search in for ‘Cowling’ and got nothing – but then that’s based on the gross assumption that his surname was Cowling – if you can let me know what his surname was – or perhaps his Pilot, then I will have another look for you

    Hello! I am looking for information about my grandmother’s first love, who she sadly lost in 1941. Sgt Richard Booth Elliott 75nz squadron, observer, 581379, died 10 January 1941 and buried at Feltwell. I have found RAF records of his last flight and where he is buried. Wondering if there might be photos of him or if anyone has any other information?
