The photographs in this album have been contributed by Robert Sharkey, whose father Jack Sharkey served with the RAF in India.

His father was John Victor Sharkey, everyone knew him as Jack Sharkey. He worked for the GPO working on telephone lines from 1936 to 1960. He is listed on Page 83 in the AIR 78/142/2 file available at https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C15625667 . His service number is 1647382

He was probably in the RAF from 1941 to 1946.

The several photographs indicate his service with No.151 OTU after it consolidated in Peshawar in 1945 and 1946. Several souvenirs and ephemera documents confirm the same as well.
