Gilchrist (PA)

The Squadron’s Operations Record Book shows that PA Gilchrist was the Captain of a 35 Squadron aircraft on the following sorties:

  1. 10/03/1941 Le Havre (Failed to Return)

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). It should be noted that some of these sorties may have been aborted and therefore would not have counted for the purposes of their “Operational Tour”. Details of all flights (including training flights) will be recorded in their Flying Log Books:

(Pilot)Peter Alexander Gilchrist1
(2nd Pilot)Reginald Lucas1
(Observer)Edward Rolfe Arnold1
(WOP / AG)Stanley Broadhurst1
(Air Gunner)Albert Edward Cooper1
(Flight Engineer)Ronald Godfrey Aedy1
