    Default Sqn Ldr WOODS RAF attachment to IAF as B-24 Liberator Instructor

    I have found references to an RAF Pilot Flt Lt Woods, later Sqn Ldr who was in India in Pune in the May 1949 -Dec 1950 and maybe beyond. He was with No.5 (Heavy Bomber) Squadron, Indian Air Force that was newly raised on B-24 Liberators

    He is seen here standing 2nd from Left. (Inspection of the Squadron by Air Marshal T W ELmhirst). Photo taken in Poona in June 1950)

    He is noted as providing instructional/familiarizaton flying to all the new officers in the Squadron.

    Any information available on him?

    Great photograph from 1950. I am impressed by the very breezy design of officers' trousers in this period - imagine a more tailored fit would have been insufferable! Jackets also modified or sleeves rolled up in deference to prevailing humidity? Apologies for slight thread drift.
