    Default 149 Sqd photo request

    Does anyone have a photo of 149 Squadron members from early 1941 that they may be willing to share?

    Kind Thanks

    Eric,

    Some years ago, Nick Carter wrote a book called "Strong by Night", a history of 149 Squadron. At the time, Nick was living just a few miles up the valley from me and we were in regular contact, but i have heard nothing from him for about 6 years. I do still have an email address for him which i'll happily pass on to you if you wish. He certainly had a plethora of photos of 149 Sqn which he would be happy to share i'm sure.

    Other than that, the "Mildenhall Register", which includes 149 Squadron, may be able to help. Their contact details can be found on the following page :-

    Thank you Greg

    I've read the book and it was that publication which initiated my research.

    I would very much appreciate having Nick's email address in order to request any additional photos he may have. Will also follow-up on your additional suggestion.

    My email address is euecn@hotmail.com

    Cheers

    Eric
