    Default Athletics in the raf

    Can anyone help? My father was in the raf from 1936 to 1945, and spent most of his time in palistine. He took part in a number of sports activities representing the raf, rugby, football and running, for which he received a silver medal awarded to him at the San Remo Hotel in palistine in 1936. His Unit/Group was 26 OTU/91 Group. I would appreciate any information.

    Hi Julie

    if you provide a full name a check can be made in Flight magazine. A lot of sporting events/prizes were reported in the magazine before the war.

    Default Athletics in the RAF

    I too am looking for information about my father. He was Arthur Wint, in the RAF from 1942 - 47, and a Flight Lieutenant. He was Jamaica's first Olympic Gold Medallist in the London Games of 1948. I know he competed during his training in the BCATP in Canada, and then in the UK. Where can I find information about athletics meets in Canada between 1942 - 44?
