Here we see the back of the service record of Ian Walters, who ended the war with No.322 (Dutch) Squadron. As this form shows, it took him almost the entire war to reach a front line squadron, and he arrived just in time to take part in the last few operations of the war.
The main section of this part of the form lists Ian's various postings during his RAF career. For most of the war he was an instructor.
