    Hi Dave,

    I was unable to find 8 ARD in 1945 in Flying training and support units since 1912 by R. Sturtivant.

    There is only 8 (Irish) Aircraft Repair Depot in 1918-19

    Hi Pavel

    Thanks for your interest.

    8 ARD appears on the Service Record of an AC1 Groundcrew in December 1945 whilst he was serving in Italy. Entries either side are 353 MU(MAAF) and 392 MU.

    Dave - thanks to additional info from you - we can move forwrad a little bit.

    From the same book as mentioned:

    353 MU from 12.3.45 Bovino, disbanded 31.12.45 to 392 MU. And now it will be interesting:)
    392 MU formed 31.12.45 from Nos 353, 357 and 380 MUs and 8 ARD (SAAF)! in 214 Gp at Brindisi, disbanded 15.6.46.

    So at least some bits for your further research.

    Hi Heritage Plus
    I too am searching a ground crew member in same area as you, The name is HERBERT EDWARD ELLIS and was a AC1 also and a ACH (GD)
    I do know that 8 ARD and 392 M.U. were located at Brindisi, Italy in december 45.
    Also at Brindisi was 113 M.U. which got disbanded and changed to 110 M.U and then later on 113 M.U.was "opened up again"
    Best regards john hudson (john335)
