Operation Jubilee aircrew list

After many visits to TNA and working through the squadron ORB's please find attached a list of almost all of the RAF squadron aircrew who took part in missions in support of Operation Jubilee. The only exception are the nine aircrews for the Defiants of 'Defiant Flight, RAF Station Northolt'.

Any comments or corrections to names and any information on their subsequent fates will be most gratefully received.

Regards,

Steve Pegge

Steve:

I have the Northolt Ops Log at home so will have a look but I am not sure but didn't this unit become 515 Sqn so maybe you will have the answer there?

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list

Chris,

Thanks for that, I'd be interested to know if the Northolt Log has anything, the ORB for RAF Station Northolt was the only one I was unable to view (its presently with the AHB).

I've looked through the 515 Squadron ORB (the Defiant Flight's early days are detailed in it), but other than its commanding officer (A/S/Ldr Thomas-appointed 11/8/42) I wasn't able to identify any other aircrew.

Regards

Steve

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list

Another one to add some detail to:

F/Lt Clapin {501 Sqn}

Flt Lt B P W 'Basil' Clapin - on attachment from No.268 Squadron RAF from 27 July 1942 to 27 August 1942. Attachment listed in unit ORB as to "Ibsley Wing" and also noted participation in Jubilee operations.

Awarded DFC after this timeframe.

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list

VoyTech, thanks for those I'll work my way through them.

Colin, thanks for that information. The ORB is correct he flew one sortie with the squadron during the day.

Regards

Steve
