Shippam (H)

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

  1. 29/12/1943 Berlin
  2. 28/01/1944 Berlin

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)Frederick Shippam2
(Navigator)Leslie Roberts2
(Air Bomber)Albert Clement Michael Taylor2
(Wireless Operator)Wilfred Roland Horner2
(Air Gunner)Alfred Harold Wood1
