Friday, 9 January 1942


The 138 Squadron ORB records that P/O B.D.C. Gibson is posted to No. 138 Squadron from RAF Uxbridge on this date. As Sergeant Gibson he flew as John Austin’s 2nd Pilot on several sorties from June to October 1941. He has been commissioned and has flown several operations since November. For the move to Tempsford in March 1942 he is listed as ‘P/O D. Gibson’. Unless there is more than one P/O Gibson at this time the posting-date seems inaccurate. A S/Ldr C.F. Gibson is killed on a Czech operation in March 1943.
