    Default Liberator Airframe Course in the UK 1943

    Hi all, I have a note about Czech mechanic being attached to a "Liberator Airframe Course" in May-June 1943 when 311 Sq was re-equipped by Liberators.
    I am interested where (unit, place) this course can be held?

    TIA

    I wonder if it was Prestwick. I seem to recall Scottish Aviation did a lot of Liberator work.

    My Father-in-law was and Armourer/Fitter on No.53 Squadron.. His personal RAF record showed a posting to Prestwick for a few weeks about the time the squadron converted to the type.
    There was a similar posting to Boulton-Paul whilst the squadron were equipped with Hudson and I rather expect that was in connection with the turret.

    Hi Tony, thank you for your reply. I was aslo thinking about Prestwick from the same reason as you have stated.
    So I will hope my chap was posted there too.
