    Thanks I just want to find out what he talks about on Pages 115-116.

    I know he served on the North West Frontier. But I am trying to find out about a loss in Sudan in the early 1930's. Reference to him came up in the book 'Air power and colonial control: the Royal Air Force, 1919-1939 By David E. Omissi', whereby the Reconnaissance of Bir Natrun and Merag, 19 Nov to 13 Dec 1931 AIR 20.686 is mentioned.... (which is what I am in fact interested in) I was wondering if he refers to the same Air Ministry Publication in his book...

    Paul,

    These pages refer to a four days stint in 1933 that he had with an Army column as a liaison officer in Waziristan and flying through a hailstone storm. The book starts in 1933 with his journey to the North West Frontier from the UK. I can find nothing in any of the chapters referring to the incident you seek information on.

    Regards

    Jim
