Re: Flt/Lt Bill Gregory, 23 squadron

Hello all,

Can anyone help with locating a photo of Bill Gregory, he was a Mossey Nav with 23 Squadron in Jul 44. Whenever I look on the internet it comes up with 'Sticks' Gregory from 29 Squadron.

Thanks for looking and your help.

Cheers

Danny

751013/115577 William James Gregory by 1944 was a Sqn Ldr with HQ 2 Gp, moving to 141 Sqn in Sep 44. It would help you if you have the initials/service for this other Gregory?

Thanks everyone for your help! I think Sticks Gregory is 29 Sqn and different to the chap I am looking for.

Chris,

I think you have the correct chap, hopefully will locate a photo of him.

Cheers

Danny
