Hello Members. I have only just joined your site so still finding my way around. My late father served with 220 Squadron. He was based at St. Eval, Lagens/Azores, Gibraltar, St Davids, and Waterbeach. He was Donald Taylor from Pontypool, South Wales and was a Flight Engineer. He served with a crew whose pilot's surname was Mallinson. Aircraft ZZ-E. I have a wonderful photograph of both air crew [sitting] and ground crew [standing] in front of their aircraft. My father finished as a Warrant Officer at Waterbeach, Cambridge. Can anyone recall him or his crew. David Taylor. [also 224 for a short time.]

Hello Taylor family

My father-in-law Flight Sgt Edward Kent was also a Flight Engineer with 220 squadron and also ended as Warrant Officer at Waterbeach. He served in all the places you mentioned around 1944-45 including the Azores from Sep 1944 - May 1945. We are seeing him tomorrow and will mention the names you have mentioned - if you want to upload one of the photographs you have I can show that to him and maybe he might recognise someone.

My father, Montague Watkins was Flight Lieutenant 153957 in RAF 220 Squadron.
Greatly appreciated if anyone can give me any leads to further information about my father.
Kind Regards
