This is my first post, and is aimed at forum member mickdavis.

I saw your reply to another member regarding 33 Sqn, in which you listed airframe numbers and types. I have in my possession an Army Book 425, Pilot's Flying Log Book. This covers the period 22 March 18 to 26 March 19. Flying hours for that period were 288:20. 35 pages in all. That is an impressive amount of flying by a looooong stretch! His last flight logged was in Avro 2410, on the 26 Mar 19 to Harperwell. Duration 40 mins.

It also details airframe numbers for 33 that were not on your list. I am presently digitally archiving another squadron's history, so if you would like some scanned images of the detail, I'll be happy to oblige.

The pilot also attended the No 2 School of Special Flying, at Redcar, Yorkshire, where he became an "Instructor of Instuctors". Qualified for: Swish tail landings, Falling Leaf, Forced Landings, Loops, Rolls, Spins and Immelmanns.
