I found the 403 Squadron ORBs on the Internet…
First page is here.
I jumped to August 1942…
I was looking for who else might be on this photo which Doug and I think was taken on August 21, 1942 two days after the Dieppe raid since Gardiner, Monchier and Walker, who were killed on August 19, are not on this group photo.
Three more are now going to be added by Doug.
I found this one using the ORBs.
Flight Lieutenant George Urquhart Hill DFC and Bar
I also found this one.
Sergeant Victor Cabas.
More on him here.
Doug found Flight Sergeant J.T. Norman.
How did he die?
