Have a Flight Sgt Oris Earl Wilson, R/37946, Pilot, says he was injured, but does not give any details of what Squadron, what aircraft, did it end his flying status ? Any help would be appreciated !

Cheers

George

Temujin,

The only info that I could find is pretty much what you got, that he wa injured, does not say how,, and can't find what squadron he was assigned to and his last comment kinda tells me it was towards the end of the war or it was a severe injury with him saying he won't be able to get a crack at the Japs ! Hope all is well !

Cheers

George
