207 SQUADRON ROYAL AIR FORCE HISTORY
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Have you done a SEARCH on this website for the 207 Squadron name or crew you seek (see link on left of your screen)? They could be on one of the Rolls of Honour.
Have you done a search on Google™ ? These days just entering a name can produce surprising results.
The editor's Aircrew and Groundcrew Research website already includes a number of information and contact requests relating to 207s. You could add your own. Just don't expect instant results. It can take a very long time for the right leads to emerge, if at all. But it happens sometimes and is worth trying.
There are many similar contact-seeking websites, some of which are listed on the Useful Sources page of the RAFRA website.
By early Spring 2014 it is hoped to add a list of those who were members of the Squadron Association at its close on 31 October 2013.
That list will also include those who have registered with this website since then.
It will simply show name, role and dates, or affiliation.
The editor relies on others to help in keeping the list up to date.
The editor also has information on some ex-207s who did not join the Association and on lapsed members of the Association.

IF YOU WISH TO MAKE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE
- If you are not previously known you will be expected to say why you wish to be put in touch.
- If neither you* nor the person you seek has an email address you will be expected to send the editor a blank stamped and sealed envelope containing the letter you wish to be sent to them. The editor will address and post it having also added his own return address in case of non-delivery. The postage must be correct for the destination.
- If the person you seek has an email address, the editor will, as appropriate, either forward your message or send them an email saying that you wish to be in touch and giving them your contact details.
* If you do not have an email address is there someone willing to handle emails for you, remembering of course that they will see any reply?
It is possible that the contact details the editor has on file are now out of date for whatever reason, so that may be why attempted contact could turn out to be unsuccessful.
It is up to the person contacted whether they reply to you. Beyond communicating the request for contact the editor can play no further part.
Although the Squadron Association closed down on 31st October 2013, new contacts who are ex-207 or have a particular interest are welcome to register with the editor, in the first instance.
