    Default Wanted Mossbank bombing and gunnery May 22 1942 class photo

    May 22, 1942 a class of 20 observers and 30 air gunners graduated from no 2 bombing and gunnery school in Mossbank Saskatchewan, Canada. They had a wings parade and group photo.

    Wing Commander Penman made the presentation.

    I believe my uncle Reg wouldíve been in that photo.

    Can some one provide an image of it?

    HC: Those sorts of photos are as scarce as henís teeth. Your best bet is from the family of someone who was in the same class. I have some class photos from dadís service but none from OTU or HCU.

    I have a class photo of the Aussies pilots on Course 58, 4 SFTS at Saskatoon June-October 1942. I contacted the Saskatoon Public Library and they had a number of photos of the full graduating classes, including Course 58.
    You might want to try them, good luck!
