Tracing Information on my Father (then Fg Off) Freddie Wright W/Op on 617 Sqn

I have found from his log book that he was detached from 15 Sqn Mildenhall to (Woodhall Spa) 617 Sqn Special Duties wef 1 June 1944. His penultimate wartime trip was taking Bomber Harris on a Tour of Brazil on 24 July to 22 August 1945 landing at Mildenhall. He eventually left the RAF as a Squadron Leader Fighter Controller in the sixties. Does anyone know how long he would have been on 617 Sqn? As he landed at Mildenhall one can only assume that he was back on 15 Sqn. Was it normal in those days to be detached from one squadron to another?
