Trying to find out any details I can about my grandfather, who spent the entirety of his service in Egypt. My grandmother is still alive and remembers his service number off by heart, but isn't entirely sure of his squadron/unit. She believes it may have been No. 420. We know that he was in Egypt for five years, having embarked from the UK in a ship and landed in Durban in South Africa before being flown to Egypt. My grandmother and I are in the process of requesting his service history from the RAF but was hoping someone would be able to shed some light or perhaps point me in the right direction for any more info in the meantime.
