    Dear Sir,
    Great site, well done!
    Please could you check your dates for 61 Air School.
    According to your details the unit disbanded on Jan 31, 1943.
    I know for a fact that 61 AS was involved in the search for survivors from the Doryessa at the end of April, 1943.
    Your help is appreciated.
    Thank you.

    My husband passed away recently, and I found a photo of his father who had just graduated as a Honour student at No 2 Air Observer School Edmonton in 1943. I googled the school and found that entaylor was researching for pupils and instructors of that school. It may be too late, but if he still wants it, I can email him a copy of it. Thank you

    Greetings,

    After a long absence I returned to login but was not able to. Possibly because I have not accessed the website in nearly one year. I looked for a password reset option but can not find one. Please let me know how to go about resetting my password. Or do I have to re-register?

    I have some photos our late father took of the Marine Craft section base at RAF Bone in 1943/44, showing the base and boats. I have sent them previously to the RAF museum and the ASRMC association if they are of interest for your archive I am happy to e-mail them

    Having been for a walk in my local cemetery,Plymyard,Eastham Wirral. I came across a head stone for a P/O Leonard Sinclair Bradburn. The headstone is very faded, but someone has filled his name using possibly a black marker, the rest of the details are faded. Having researched him he was killed on a training flight in April 1941.
    My question is, the headstone is not the normal CWGC, it is more probably a family one and because he was killed whilst training does the above not recognise him as a war casualty, hence the type of headstone used.
    It would be nice if some funds could be found to make it clearer/upgrade.

    This isn’t a comment, but I am getting frustrated that I cannot contact the webmaster. I have noticed a thread about my uncle (same name as mine) that I want to add some information too. I am not on facebook and cannot find a phone number on the site – I am having a problem registering.

    Bonjour,
    I’m Johan Ledoux from middle France.
    I have at home, a frame with an interesting original picture (and details about the pilots, cadets, group captains and air vice marshal “JT Babington”) of the Government Flying Training School in Singapore, dated October 1940. I would be selling it, if someone of your members is interesting.
    I can send pictures, if I had a email address where I can send them, or if someone can give me informations about this “Cadet Squad N°2” in Singapour.
    Thank you very much.
    Regards
    Johan Ledoux

    Dear Sir
    I am currently researching Wing Commander Aubrey Richard DeLisle Inisss (42005) and I a finding conflicting service information. I would appreciate any assistance you can provide. Conflicts include:
    1. date he joined the RAF – January 1939 or Apr 29, 1939 the date of his short service commission as Acting Pilot Officer.
    2. When did he join 236 Squadron. Is it the date he was upgraded to Pilot Officer in probation – Nov. 6, 1939
    3. When did he join 248. Was it 1941 or 1942
    4. No of kills – I have seen 7 and on your site I have seen 8 and 1 shared.

    Dear Sir,

    I came across a discussion about my uncle, Colonel Milton Murphy, on your forum while doing a Google search in hopes of finding information about him.
    He went to Canada and enlisted in 1917, according to my mother, because he wanted to fly, and there was no Air Force in the United States, which was was not yet involved in the war (obviously it was early in 1917). After enlisting, he was sent to England.
    He served as an enlisted man in England from 1917 to 1918 – from a piece on him upon his retirement, in the Waterloo, NY Political Journal, October 30, 1953.
    According to this same paper, when he first began his training, the only plane available was a Curtiss JN4, better known as a “Jenny.”
    “We flew by the seat of our pants.” – Milton Murphy.
    It was very interesting seeing a discussion of my uncle on your forum.

    Best,
    Kimberley Edwards

    I appear to be a member of this site but when I try to leave a message it says I cannot.
    My father was Flight Sergeant Hugh Parmenter Moule killed 3.4.1943.
    There was a question regarding him in lost airmen and I wanted to reply to it. The pilot’s name who was flying the Defiant wasW/O H Whitmill. The plane number A.A. 542. On that night they ran into some AA fire as there was enemy activity. The pilot took evasive action and lost height from 7000 feet to 1500 feet. They were unable to contact control or find a beacon but eventually were given a vector of 030 degrees which was confirmed again after another check fix. A few minutes after being given this vector the aircraft struck a balloon cable and the starboard wing caught fire. Pilot bailed out safely but my father was killed.
    In 1940 my father was in France in Squadron 13. The answer to the question was he Hugh Parmenter Moule 626121 who was the only survivor in the Lysander that crashed is correct and he did spend time in No 4 General Hospital. If you need to know anything else please contact me.

    Want to correct comment about my dad, James Amsler Gray
    ES 71
    His nickname was not Tex but rather “Jerko” Gray
    Yes, he was the historian for the ES, a labor of love. Died in his native CA, 11-25-09.
    His medals/exhibit remain in his beloved England @ Duxford in Imperial War Museum. He also worked hard on developing the 1986 ES monument in Grosvenors Sq London.
