    Default Parents Raf service

    Hi,
    My father was first at Cardington then went to Bicester 13OTU 104 Sqadron MK1 Blenheims as a turret Gunner in 1939. His plane overshot the runway and finished up in a tree. He did not fly again. He then went Methwold as a drill and gas instructor and met my mother at Feltwell. Mum was Corporal Jane Adams incharge of WAAFS in 1940 and married my father in 1943.

    I am trying to find any information of where they served or anyone who knew them.
    Father used to talk about Johnny Johnson at Methwold and Paddy Rankin. He did tell me that while on Flare path duty at Methwold I think a German Plane followed the bombers in and landed waved and took off again.

    My mother remembers Jeanie Stuart, Mavis Thackery, The Harvey sisters.
    Also Mum said that Photographs were taken when she was taking a drill one time.

    If anyone has Photographs or may remember any of the names I would like to know.

    I have put some of my Photographs in pictures and albums Parents at Feltwell and methwold

    Cheers Willowmac
