    Hi,

    I am not able to find infos on Google for the 8 EFTS at Reading in spring/summer 1941.

    Hi Bertrand

    8 EFTS was actually located at Woodley near Reading ( a very short distance from Reading town centre, part of Reading actually. I live nearby) . This is the "famous" place where Douglas Bader suffered his terrible accident.
    There is a whole chapter about Woodley in
    "Thames Valley Airfields in the Second World War" by Robin Brooks, pages 207-211.
    If you need any more details, please contact me sending PM.

    Regards
    Peter
