    Default No 11 Air Gunnery School 1943

    I know this is a long shot but does anyone have or know the whereabouts of Air Gunner course photographs for 11 AGS in the summer of 1943?

    Many thanks

    Hi Daz,

    I have a few course photos for 11 AGs at Andreas. I also have some photos of airmen at 11 AGS, most I'm afraid have no names attached. Are you searching for anyone in particular?

    yes I am my uncle Sgt B Sheerin who was at 11 AGS from 23 July 1943 throught to 21 September when he joined 15 O.T.U. any chance you could email me the photos so I could see if he is on any of those that you have?

    Regards

    I found some course photo's for Air Gunners at Kew when searching for the proverbial needle. They pop up in various files relating to the schools or airfields.
    Good luck

    Apologies for bringing this back to life but I'm still looking for photos if anyone has them. I've drawn a blank both at Kew and at the RAF Museum. I've also tried the Isle of Man museum and the IWM without any luck. Tommy the chap who originally responded has never replied and I think he has left the forum.

    Many thanks
