Chronology Redux

I think everyone needs to figure out again where R.C. Harris was posted before being posted with 23 Squadron.

He was first posted to Initial navigation course at RAF Staverton from 13 October 1941 to 26 October 1941. He was flying on Avro Ansons.

From 25 November 1941 to 7 December 1941 he was posted at No 3 Radio School who was flying on Bristol Blenheims

From 12 March 1942 to 22 April 1942, R.C. Harris was posted to No. 54 Operational Training Unit (O.T. U.) based at RAF Church Fenton. He was flying on Blenheims and Beaufighters.

Then from 2 May 1942 to 30 August 1942, he was posted to 456 Squadron RAAF flying on Beaufighters.

From 2 September 1942 to 21 January 1943 he was with 535 Squadron.

He flew on Havocs, Tiger Moths, and Bostons.

From 4 March 1943 to 30 September 1943 he went back to 456 Squadron at RAF Valley and RAF Colerne where he flew on Mosquito NF MkII, occasional Ansons.

Next time the story will continue…

  1. Hello Pierre!

    Thank you so much for your recent posts.
    Several people here are now hanging on your every word.
    Do you need anything more from me?
    I have been following the British Lions tour of Australia and am so happy with their wonderful win over The Wallabies today.
    I also follow Bedford Blues Rugby Union Club and one of their key members is James Pritchard who has played for Canada for several years – a great guy!!

    Take care –


    • Hi Rob,

      I only need the missing two scans of the logbook. Those that did not worked.
      Any picture you have also if they are any.
