It is very possible he was in the Azore Islands in 1944. Note information from my website on him:

" The third squadron was a composite unit. Coinciding with a command change, number 269 squadron ( HK ) ( R.A.F. ) celebrated its eighth organizational anniversary on December 7, 1944. Wing Commander G.A.B. Cooper was welcomed by at least 35 officers, 39 N.C.O’s and 102 other ranks. A mixture of maritime patrol, the squadron conducted air sea rescue, meteorological and target towing missions. On rare occasion, the squadron was called upon to use its previous renowned experience in U-boat hunting and vessel escort. "

I hope this might help.
