    Default RAF Officers - post-war period - photo hunt

    Hi all,

    I know that this is again off-topic request but I do not know any better forum where to ask than this one:)

    While working on my another book I have identified following personnel my man met during his post-war RAF career.
    This time I am not looking for any additional service details but only for photos or advice how contact them/their families if anyone knows.

    Any help much apprecitaed - I am hoping to find out at least few of them.

    Note: Please respect this forum rules and when providing any contact details etc. for living relatives contact me by PM or by email in my Profile. Thx.

    I have just seen this.

    Edward Patterson is my grandfather, Iím tracing back information about him and this came up in a search.

    William Fred Knapper (582015) was Cmd as a Cranwell Cadet on 5 Apr 1950. He was also a well-liked Station Commander, as a Gp Capt, at RAF Benson on one of my tours there. The College will have a pic of him, but whether you can get hold of it might be difficult! There must be a lot of pix of him as Station Master Benson?
