This would actually be a Brandenberger/SS sort of formation, not necessarily a fighter squadron.

Then something like this could be your thing: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonder_ ... ranienburg
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

No real context needed for this - just interesting and amusing.

Psychological Warfare of the Malayan Emergency 1948-1960 wrote:“You’re a bunch of bastards,” shouted Templer (Sir Gerald Templer, High Commissioner and Director of Operations in Malyasia); and Rice, who spoke Chinese, listened carefully as the translator announced without emotion: “His Excellency informs you that he knows that none of your mothers and fathers were married when you were born.”

Templer waited, then, pointing a finger at the astonished villagers to show them who was the “Tuan,” added “You may be bastards, but you’ll find out that I can be a bigger one.” Missing the point of the threat completely, the translator said politely, “His Excellency does admit, however, that his father was also not married to his mother.”

RP Experience: Well, I'm just hurt by this question
Personal History:
Kenneth Carson was born in Santa Monica, California in January 1912 to Frank Carson and his fiance, Barbara Myers. For the first few years of his life, he lived in relative domestic tranquility with the support of his well-to-do grandfather, who had made large amounts of money as a succesful doctor to various early Hollywood personalities and investors, along with the his father's paycheck from his service as a pilot with the Aero Service in the First World War. However, tragedy soon struck the family when his father was killed over France. The first in a series of tragedies to strike the family, it was soon followed by his grandfather being murdered by members of an organized crime elements after he stood up to strong armed robbery of a morphine shipment. This proved to be the family's financial collapse, with Kenneth living through years of poverty as a child, even before the start of the Great Depression in 1929, which totally destroyed his chance at attending any college. Robert eventually joined the LAPD in January of 1930 right after turning 18, and graduating from the Police Academy later that year, and began working as a Beat Cop in December. He completed enough night classes to obtain a college degree in 1931, thus qualifying him for promotion within the LAPD. After spending three years as a beat cop, he was promoted to Detective I and was soon transferred to the prestigious Homicide Desk later that year. In December of 1935, he received a case that would haunt him for the rest of his life.

On the Morning of Monday, December 16th, 1935, America was reading headlines of the Detroit Lions' resounding victory over the New York Giants in the National Football League's championship game and of its continued long slog through the depression. However, Hollywood's many film studios were still making movies in spite of the economy, and various stars had risen in their employ. However, actress Thelma Todd career came to a tragic halt when she was found dead in her 12-cylinder Lincoln in the garage of former actress Jewel Carmen. The 29-year actress was declared as having committed suicide via Carbon Monoxide poising by the other detectives of the LAPD, despite being believed by her family and friends to have no motives for taking her own life and blood being found in the car along with having injuries to her face along with having multiple connections to possible organized crime elements in the city. Despite the case having been declared closed by the other detectives of the heavily corrupt Los Angeles Police Department, Carson continued to dig, thus making himself many enemies within the Department and uncovering a possible link to mob boss "Lucky" Luciano. In spite of his discoveries on the case was soon sent away from the Homicide desk in a politically-motivated transfer in 1936, being sent to the infamous Vice Desk, known primarily for its racism against Los Angeles's Latino and African American communities, excessive use of force, and being heavily paid off by the mob bosses of the time, such as "Bugsy" Siegel. It proved to be a perfect set-up for the older generation of corrupt LAPD officers, particularly the enemies he had made at the Homicide Desk, to pin something on him. Falsely accused of corruption during the Administration of Mayor Fletcher Bowron, Carson was among 45 officers forced out of the Department in Late 1937.

Once again left in life with no alternatives, Carson decided to follow in his father's footsteps and in his boyhood dreams of being a pilot and attempted to join the Navy's Aviation Cadet Training Program as a Marine Corps Aviation Cadet in December 1937. He completed the program at NAS Pensacola soon afterwards in 1938 and was soon commissioned as a Second Lieutenant of Marines within the year and assigned to VMF-2 at Naval Air Station San Diego, flying the Grumman F2F. He participated in two major Fleet Problems while with VMF-2, and was promoted to 1st Lieutenant following the end of Fleet Problem XX in February of 1939. With the outbreak of war in Europe in 1939, Carson transferred to the Marine Corps Reserve and itching to get into the fight, he traveled to Vancouver to join the RCAF secretly under a false identity. He was temporarily assigned to No.1 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force, before receiving mysterious transfer orders to the mysterious No.319 Squadron in the English countryside, with seemingly everyone else having never heard of RAF Manston or of its mysterious tenant unit. Someone, somewhere was apparently keeping an eye on him and knew of his past, and clearly had plans for Carson which he didn't understand, but was determined to find out.

Finally was able to post, sorry about the delay.

Also Morddh, I noticed Patrick served with an RAF Armored Car Company during the Arab Revolts. Not to make the squadron more of an old friends club than it already is, but perhaps him and Cliff met once or twice on a mission there?

Mm-hmm, mine was part of a British Mechanised Cavalry Regiment and was also enlisted though, so while they might have met, I doubt either would have paid overmuch attention to the other.

Gren and I had an interesting TG discussion a few months ago about whether or not ES operations should "follow the greatest hits" (IE the wikipedia WW2 timeline of what exactly happened when), or should try and go do more unconventional things. Our consensus, if I remember, was that we should do both at once, which was...no decision at all. :p
So rest assured, this is an excruciatingly well-researched and plausible RP deeply rooted in reality that is also chock-full of doom zeppelins and mechanical Nazi velociraptors.

The great thing about Excalibur is that we've already done one of those things.

Gren and I had an interesting TG discussion a few months ago about whether or not ES operations should "follow the greatest hits" (IE the wikipedia WW2 timeline of what exactly happened when), or should try and go do more unconventional things. Our consensus, if I remember, was that we should do both at once, which was...no decision at all. :p
So rest assured, this is an excruciatingly well-researched and plausible RP deeply rooted in reality that is also chock-full of doom zeppelins and mechanical Nazi velociraptors.

If it were up to me, I'd say we should follow the timeline. But also think we ought to leave certain bits out. Like, we shouldn't be bombing any Ruhr valley dams or mining any German battleships in fjords.

MIAMI DOLPHINS

It's coming home.

Half a bee, philosophically, must ipso facto half not be. But half the bee has got to be, vis-à-vis its entity - do you see? But can a bee be said to be or not to be an entire bee when half the bee is not a bee, due to some ancient injury?
