    Default Flt Sgt F C Adams

    Hello

    I am researching my family history and I would like to know more about the life and career of my Great Uncle, Flt Sgt Frederick (Fred) Charles Adams.

    He joined the RAF in 1924 and started as an apprentice Carpenter Rigger at Cranwell before being moved to Halton. He spent much of his career in the Middle East, specifically Hinaidi and Habbaniya in Iraq. His squadrons included 30(B), 70, 58(B), 215(B) and he was a flying instructor with No 4 FTS (later 4 SFTS).

    Sadly shortly after joining 127 Sqn he was killed in action over Syria in July 1941.

    Hopefully I will discover more whilst reading through the interesting threads in this forum.

    Hi Dave,

    Can you tell me when he served on 30 Sqn and what was his role while with the Sqn?

    Hi Simon

    From 1929 to 1933 he appeared to switch backwards and forwards between 70 and 30 Sqn.
    He was a carpenter rigger at the time but it looks as though he was also an air gunner.
