504 Squadron RAF question

Bowyer 1979 has it based at Ibsley but this is in Hampshire not Norfolk. Can an aficionado give its base on 3 May 1943 (for a wiki article on Ramrod 16). Thanks.

This seems to agree with Bowyer.

There is a lot more detail here.

The NA digital records such as the squadron ORBs are free to download at present provided you register with them. Once you log in the charge switches from £3.50 to Free. It is only the digitised records however.
