No. 6 Squadron fighting in France 1939/40

Some of you will be aware of my other posts about Sgt Eric Bann of 238 Squadron.
I have been looking into this pilot for a few years now as his letters home before he was killed during the Battle of Britain indicate he served in France in 1939/40 and fought over Dunkirk before being sent to help form 238 just before the Battle of Britain started.
RAF records appear to show he could not have served in France as he was not in a front line squadron during this time, HOWEVER.....i have now recieved some information stating he served with No 6 Squadron in France....

My knowledge on the air fighting and the Squadrons involved over France is limited:

Did 6 Squadron serve in France ?
Does anyone have a list of all pilots with the Squadron ?
Is Sgt Bann on the list??
