keith A is on a distinguished road
133 Eagle Squadron.

Can anyone tell me when AFLt HAS Johnston joined 133? Initially I thought it was in August 1941 (when the squadron was formed) however there appears to have been a long period of training after this and Johnston was still only a PO in August 1941, albeit with one (probably two) kills to his credit.

From the Air Force lists it is clear he was made a Flying Officer in November 1941 and therefore I am of the opinion that he was probably made an Acting Flight Lieutenant around the same time. His promotion to Flight Lieutenant followed a year later in November 1942.
