Marilyn is looking for information on her father.
Could anyone out there tell me if it is possible to find out names of pilots who flew the Mosquito and their squadrons? My father flew the Mosquito but I do not know what squadron he was in.
Patrick Maguire never talked much about the war like so many veterans, but he talked to his daughter about the Mosquito.
Having his service record will help us find more about him and thus help Marilyn find out more about her father.
Patrick Maguire’s service commenced on 11 June 1942.
He was a LAC (Leading Aircrafman) and was discharged to get a commission as a Flying Officer on May 5th, 1944. He got promoted on November 5th, 1944.
There are no entries about logging some flight time anywhere in the service record.
Here are the postings indicated on his service record. The scans were incomplete and Marilyn gave me the dates.
So where to begin?
With these two documents.
