|Air Commodore Harold Peter BROAD (26174)||Geoff,
I never could locate a photograph of Broad - either from his India days or later. But my contact with IWM Documents and Sound section was quite fruitful. I corresponded with Ellen Parton - who helped me get copies of the relevant pages from 1933 that dealt with his India flying.
