Lokking for #64 RAF

Recommended Posts

WhiteWings

Hi All - I am trying to find out if #64 was at Izel-les-Hameau during June and July of 1918. My grandfather Whealy's squadron (#203) was there, as was #5, but my grandfather makes a mention of a Canadian pilot from #64 as though he was part of the community. Hope someone can help out with this!

No 64 Squadron was based at Izel-lès-Hameau from 15 October 1917 to 23 October 1918.

What exactly is #64? It's not something I've seen before in the context of 'RAF' (Royal Air Force I assume)?

 

Or is this txt-speak?

No. 64 Squadron, I'd assume?

Given the context, it's more likely to be 'Canadianism'.  However, that's no excuse for the rampant sarcasm being shown.  It takes no more energy to give a polite answer using the correct terminology, than it does to take a dig at the original poster.

 

I sincerely hope that WhiteWings hasn't been deterred from posting further information.

 

Anyway, Happy Father's Day, if applicable.

Hardly rampant sarcasm. Just a request for clarity on my part.
