Matt,

I can see the problem with the photos having looked through the copy of the original book you sent me. I suppose you could get a couple from the AWM, but I don't know what they charge for commercial use. Something hefty I should imagine.

Should it be any help, my father has a number of press clippings similar to those in Andrews' book and I can scan them for you. Am not sure if any are identical, but as they were both on 215 at the same time their operational histories must have overlapped somewhere.

I also have the DFC recommendations for both Reg Grouse and Fred Houghton, as well as some info on the mid-upper, William Smith. His DFM group was sold in 2016 on e-bay. The DFM was a replacement as the original was said to have been stolen in a burglary in the 1970s. That put me off it at the time, but I'm now more chilled and rather regret not going for it.

Regards,

Geoff
