    Hi there.

    We are currently auctioning a few Guy Gibson signatures. One of them is a photograph of a Spezia mission which is signed by Gibson and someone else. Can anyone help identify who the other person is? The signature is annotated "Group Captain".

    I don't think I'm allowed to post a link but you can find it by searching Guy Gibson on the PFC Auctions website. Its Lot 137. There's more information in the description.

    Thanks!

    Hello

    I think that this relates to Gibson's time in 106 squadron when they were based at RAF Syerston. I can't find any record of who was the Station Commander on these precise dates, but looks it may be Group Capt RVM Odbert who is the most likely suspect, though others may well know for certain
