    Default Air Gunner Thomas West 1494650

    I am new to this website and forum so please don't shout if I'm in the wrong category. I'm looking for any information about Thomas Archibald West 1494650 who was an Air Gunner during WWII. I have a list of units/stations he served at and listings of sorties from his Flight record book showing the aircraft he flew on, including Anson's, Halifax's and Wellingtons.
    Can someone tell me how do I post these pages from his Flight book to this thread.

    Hi Phil,

    you should read the tutorial how to upload your images to the forum gallery:
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...torial-Updates

    Than you can add links to the photos in the gallery to this thread.

    You should also write down what information are you looking for? From the post above I would say you have already quite a lot so you should specify what are you looking for now.

    Hello Pavel,

    Thanks for contacting. I have reviewed the uploading of images but it's not a simply exercise unlike other forums where you upload an image directly into the post of a thread. I'm trying to put together the timeline for Thomas West from when he enlisted to his discharge. I have a long list of units/station he served at and number of squadrons/OTU's/HTU's/Groups so I'm trying to establish the order he served with each. I was hoping your members might have more information about his service. I'm at the moment waiting for a reply from RAF Disclosures to see if they have his service record. Thanks for the concern.
    Phil

    Hi Phil,

    members of this forum may be able to provide you some details about the units in question etc. but I am afraid not the right order - you better wait for his RAF Service Record.
    As for his service with squadrons you can try your luck with the Squadron ORBs preview online - you can follow detailed manual on the website of one of our members: http://www.ww2irishaviation.com/TNA_...guidelines.pdf

    Hi Phil
    I use Imjur (photo host website) - I used to use Photobucket until their ransom demand.
    Using a photo hosting website like Imjur means that one can indeed post directly to a Forum Page.
