    Default 1332 htcu

    Hi all

    I am getting confused to the location of 1332 Heavy Transport Conversion Unit between June and December 1946. Some sources I read state it was as RAF Longtown others at RAF Dishforth.

    Can anyone confirm its location please?

    Thanks

    Thank you Pavel.

    This does tie in with some other data I have read also. Interestingly I have a service record that calls it 1332 HTCU in June 46, mind you that doesn't mean it was 100% called that as it also refers to 1662 as HCU when it was HTCU :)

    You are welcome. Yes you cannot trust any record for 100%. Recently I have found in service record a posting in 1931 to the unit with name which does not exists till 1937!
