Who manned mid-upper turret before MUG

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 Engineer F/Sgt Wm. Holden Robinson, 571837 doubled as gunner in a combat on the 24th November 1941. Was this the standard?

Thanks in advance,
