Young (H)

The Squadron’s Operations Record Book shows that H Young was the Captain of a 35 Squadron aircraft on the following sorties, prior to the cessation of hostilities in Europe:

  1. 22/04/1945 Bremen

The following shows the composition of his crew on these sorties, along with the number of sorties undertaken by each airman as part of his crew (as recorded in the squadron’s Operations Record Book). Details of all flights (including training flights) will be recorded in their Flying Log Books:

(Pilot)Hugh Young1
(Navigator)H Farrand1
(Air Bomber)Robert William Hodgson1
(Wireless Operator)EJ Hill1
(Air Gunner)CL Carter1
GH Tompkin1
(Flight Engineer)H Dickens1

It is known that some (or all) of these airmen continued to fly operationally with the squadron during the post war clean up, which included repatriation of POW and service personnel, Cooks Tours, testing of German radar and disposal of surplus incendiaries. However, the squadron’s record book only provides a summary of these activities and does not list the individual captains and crews that took part in these sorties.
