F/Lt E. C. LANE-SANSAM with 15 Sqn 1940

Hi, I got the information on another Forum that F/Lt Ernest Charles LANE-SANSAM (42236) was in No.15 Squadron in July 1940. I hope someone can confirm when he joined 15 Sqn, when he left the unit and which unit he was posted to when he left 15 Sqn. Probably is his name spelled LANE-SAMSON in the ORB...

Who manned mid-upper turret before MUG

Hi, When reading the 7 Sqn ORB from 1941 I cannot see which crew member manned the mid-upper turret, or earlier the beam guns, before the Mid Upper gunner was introduced (first mentioned in June 1942). In the Distinguished Flying Medal Register for the WW2 by Ian Tavender I see that the Flight Engin...

Summary 3 Group combat claims 1943-1945

Re: Combat claims by No.3 Group

Hi, Wayne: Thanks for your encouraing Words. The work with the database can be frustrating especially as many of the claims are not mentioned in the squadron ORBs. During 1941 No.7 Sqn ORB mentioned all claims and even had a list of claims but during 1942 much less information can be found and claim...
