    Default 19 (LAA) Sqn - where was it based in Aug-Oct 1949?

    I'm assuming that LAA stands for Light Anti-Aircraft, but if so where was the squadron based during Aug-Oct 1949. Somewhere on the Continent, apparently - possibly in Germany? My man was posted to the unit the day after his posting to BAFO.

    TIA,
    Errol

    Hi Errol

    It was formed in May 1949 at Gutersloh so was probably still there.

    19 Squadron RAF Regiment was originally No 750 Squadron RAF Regiment (formed early 1941) before all RAF Reg Sqn being renumbered with 2 at the front in 1942. No 2750 Squadron was remumbered 55 Sqn RAFReg in 1947, and then 19 LAA Sqn in 1949.
