First flight with W/Cdr Hamley AFC – Future CO of 488 Squadron

On 22/vii/43, Broody was Navigator for Wing Commander Peter Hamley AFC for a 20 minute transport flight to Twinwood Farm. This is only of note as Hamley was at 51 OTU to get night operations training before moving to 488 (NZ) Squadron as Commanding Officer. Prior to this course, W/Cdr Hamley had been CO of a Spitfire OTU.

Broody paired up with Hamley, and flew the majority of his hours with him at 51 OTU.
