    Default Cambridge University Air Squadron

    I am trying to find a list of members of the Cambridge University Air Squadron for around 1934-6. Does it exist? All I have got from Wikipedia is that the C.O. was Sqn Ldr John Stanley Crick and there is a list of notable members e.g Frank Whittle, but none of the less notable members.

    From the period 30 - 33, the Watson brothers from NZ. William Robert Browning Watson was a member from 30 - 33 amassing 106 hrs and 45 mins, but not qualifying for a flying badge as there was no night flying included. He served with the RNZAF during WW2 ending the war as a Sqn Ldr with a DFC (US), flying Venturas in the Pacific. Samuel Miles Mackenzie Watson was a member of the UAS in 32/33 amassing 150 hrs, but qualifying for his flying badge. He also flew in NZ with the pre-war Territorial Air Force. Flew with the RAFVR during WW2 in 75 Sqn. Killed on Air Operations on the night of 20/21 Jul 40 and subsequently awarded a posthumous m.i.d. Regards, Terry
