    Default AGLS Course (RAF Warboys)

    One of the log books that I am working with shows a 35 Squadron pilot (and crew?) being detached to RAF Warboys for the AGLS Course (a week in April 1945).

    Any ideas on what the AGLS stands for, and is it related [or the same as] the PFFNTU Course?

    You usual help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    Pete, Hi,

    1323 (Automatic Gun Laying Turret) Flight was at Warboys at this time. So could this be an Automatic Gun Laying School/System with the instruction given by 1323 Flt? Apr 1945 is close to the end of WW2. IIRC Warboys was in use as a Displaced Persons (DP) camp very soon after the end of the War (as were a large number of RAF airfields in the area that had gone to C&M at War’s end). So this 35 Sqn Det must have been one of the last operational duties at Warboys?

    HTH
