Squadron Personnel: Summary Information

Overview

There follows below lists of the officers and men who served in 550 Squadron. The information used to build this page was taken in the first instance from the lists provided on the original Squadron Association web-site, but have been augmented by new and additional information gathered since that time.

This information is not yet complete: it has been build from the Roll of Honour, Decorations and Senior Officer lists, and then by working through other available records. So please don't shout just yet if you spot an omission - work continues to build a more complete, and accurate, list.
Do however shout if you spot an error! Please email any corrections or information to the contact details in the link at the bottom of the page.

Serviceman Details: The column headers should be fairly self-explanatory. The final column (Web links) contains, where given, links to other items on this web-site or indeed to external sources where further information or photographs, etc can be found.

Aircraft: When a link to a particular aircraft is given, this only indicates aircraft it is known the crewman was associated with (such as when flight logs are available or the aircraft has failed to return from an operation). It does not exclude the fact that the crewman may well have flown on other aircraft too, that is either just not documented in the currently available records or simply not known to the author. The aircraft links will take you to the operations listed for that aircraft.

Note that the vast bulk of the information available about squadron servicemen presented below concerns air-crew; almost no information is available about the men, and women, of the technical and other ground crews who played their part in making the squadron an effective fighting unit. This is a shame, given the key role they played in keeping the aircraft in the air and the men flying them able to do their job. So if you have ground-crew information do please send it in so that it too can be included in the squadron record.

Definitions of the abbreviations used are available: here.

First live op as 2nd pilot to P/O Bibby, LM460, 14 June 1944
Posted to W.C.A.D on being reported missing 19.7.44
It is thought that F/O Clark unable to leave the controls to bale out himself, attempted a forced-landing but crashed in the process.
Buried in Brookwood Military Cemetery.
On 23 July 1944 W/C A.F.M Sisley, the CO of 550 Squadron, noted he had flown 14 sorties (65 hours 50 minutes) and wrote: "The officer concerned was in my opinion a reliable and capable officer and an extremely efficient operational pilot, as his last operational sortie proved."

Cornes RAF 1522542 F/Eng - Cornes and Ruppel were both 100 Squadron personnel, members of F/O Kenneth P Dunckley crew. Dunckley had been taken off flying duties due to suffering delayed concussion following an accident in which Dunckley was struck by a bicyclist returning from the local pub in the blackout in October 1943 (and so the men were presumably available on "loan" to fly with F/Sgt Jefferies)
Cornes was killed over Berlin on 30 Jan 1943 flying with 100 Sqdn (Source John Proctor)
He is buried in BERLIN 1939-1945 WAR CEMETERY

Ditson RCAF R.285781 MU/AG - Posted to 550 Sqdn from No. 71 Base w.e.f. 8-1-45

Sgt Ditson was injured in the shoulder (double fracure of the right scapula) after the F/O Harris crew had had an eventful trip to Pforzheim (23 Feb 1945), collapsing the undercarriage on landing at Manston. This is described in the narrative included in the Station Operational Record Book as "Station Narrative No. 11 Harris crew, Pforzheim, 23/24 Feb 1945". Following this he did not fly with the Harris crew again, before they failed to return from the Dessau raid on 07/03/1945.

Freeman RAF 1806695 R/AG - Posted to 550 Sqdn from RAF Station, Elsham Wolds w.e.f 19.3.44

Posted to No. 300 Sqdn on 12.6.44 for the formation of an English Flight on a Polish Sqdn

[Ed. The 550 ORB states transfer to 330 Sqdn, but http://www.raf.mod.uk/history/bombercmdsquadrons.cfm does NOT list a 330 Sqdn as a Bomber Command squadron (only 300, 301, 304 and 305 listed as Polish Sqdns). There was a 330 Sqdn in Coastal Command. So it appears that the 550 ORB has an error in this listing of the transfer out posting. Further, relatives of Bill Freeman have confirmed from his records that he was posted to 300 Sqdn, and a page from the 300 Sqdn ORB confirms the influx of ex-550 Sqdn aircrew on that date.]

Bill Freeman died 21st July 2016 at the age of 93.
