I'm currently trying to find references to RAF personnel being 'loaned' to the USAAF, rather like USAAF individuals being seconded to RAF units. Exactly how often did the former happen (if at all) and is there any evidence to show that RAF aircrew went on combat missions as part of USAAF bomber crew?
Thanks for any leads anyone is able to offer.
This is an interesting subject. I do know of at least one example of this, and it occurred with the 357th Fighter Group, known as the "Yoxford Boys". Chuck Yeager flew with the 357th during the war. However, a little known fact is that a RNZAF Flight Lieutenant by the name of Jack Cleland flew with the 357th as an exchange pilot. He kept his F/L rank, and operated with the squadron. Rather then me write the whole story, see the following link about Jack Cleland.
