    Default Alan M Peart DFC - research

    Hi,

    I am researching Alan M Peart DFC - Spitfire Ace from New Zealand.

    He served in 81 Squadron in Burma from January 1944 to June 1944. He was based at Imphal, Palel, Ramu (Reindeer 1), Kangla, Tulihal and Broadway.

    I am looking for the map location of Reindeer 1 Ramu. I have some conflicting information and would be grateful if anyone could assist.

    I have a decent library of reading materials from Norman Frank, Chris Shores, Andrew Thomas, Bryn Evans and every TNA 81 Squadron online record. I have Alan's book also.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Drew Brown.

    Drew and myself had an offline discussion elsehwhere - I had pointed out the WW2talk thread - additionally there is another map that clearly identifies the Ramu Landing Ground locations that I will post here for future reference.

    Ramu was one of the four Landing Grounds Ramu1, Ramu2, 3, 4 etc east of Cox Bazaar. Ramu 1 was located here https://goo.gl/maps/6tRBSaKUxTqJSpRo9 Ramu 4 to the East of it. South of the River were Ramu 3 and Ramu 2 respectively.


    Note sure if this opens but its a FB link https://scontent-lga3-2.xx.fbcdn.net...81&oe=60478D57
