    This is not any help but I am in the middle of researching some of the early 38 Grp AOCs, and their attitudes.
    38 Grp often had a lot of parachute functions.
    Somebody (or -bodies) up in Air Min clearly wanted a particular type of attitude in the AOCs of 38 Grp they chose.
    I was posted into 38 Grp (MMU RAF Odiham) when Mickey Martin was the Boss. It was a good Grp to work in.

    Not an answer to your query Peter, but were you aware his portrait is held by the IWM (https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/4657)

    Also see National Portrait Gallery (https://www.npg.org.uk/collections/s...n-Hollinghurst)
