Maj Donald A. Young

Maj Donald A. Young (2/0/4) flew with 335FS/4FG between 9/42-10/43. Earlier he flew with 133 Sqn, has any one got details of his career with this Sqn. Did he make any claims?

Regards

Thanks for the additional info.

You are correct, it was 121 Sqn not 133 Sqn, I was in error.

Re: Maj Donald A. Young

Re the Fw 190 he bounced and damaged - could have eventually gone down? This took place over English Channel on 6 - 31 - 42.Glad I could help a bit.
Cheers,
Mike
