Squadron 211

      Don Clark - My latest 211 Sqdn update, I've been able to make considerable progress with 211 operations and losses in Sumatra and Java. The tale is still far from complete, and there is still material to work up, which I hope to complete by early August.

      The three relevant pages are:
      The Far East
      Sumatra and Java
      and RAAF personnel
      this last section is my current focus.

      Another good source for this period other than Shores is Bon Hall's Glory in Chaos. My own work is largely founded in primary sources.

      I thought I should let you know, as my recent material may be of interest to the Kewish/Bott correspondents. For example, there were very many RAAF men in 211 Sqdn (and in 84 Sqdn too). No RAAF unit in the FE operated Blenheims at this date.

Alberts War

      Ron - Paul Morrell has been very kind in sending in a book he has written about his grandfather called Alberts War.

      It follows the 18th Division from Britain to Singapore and beyond. Albert was in the Royal Army Medical Corps. and after the 18th Division had disembarked at Singapore, he left with refugees on the Wakefield. It is a good guess that his medical assistance was required with the women and children on board.

      Lucky, I hear you say, read the story, now on the Fepow Community and Britain at War.


      Paul was awarded June's Top Story for his Convoy William Sail 12X article, which from the feedback every one enjoyed.
