View Full Version : Peter Green Collection

28th February 2011, 23:41
I would like to find out about this collection and if it s possible to get any prints from it. I found a very interesting image in Ken Delve's book "Vickers-Armstrongss Wellington" which includes several photographs from this collection, does any one have any information. I have used google but only seem to find modern day photographers with the name of Peter Green.

Maybe Ken Delve might have the answer.

Thanks in advance

Hello Wimpy,
Peter Green's stuff was frequently used by Key Publishing in Flypast magazine.
Here is their contact page: http://www.flypast.com/contact.asp
Ken Ellis would be the chap to ask.
I have been out of the aviation literature loop for the best part of 10 years, so I do not know if Peter is still with us.

There are a number of photos at the IWM listed as the Peter Green Collection so its possible he donated the material there. I have an idea I contacted him sometime but cant find a letter at the moment. If I do i'll let you know.

I have Peter's address and phone number if that would help - he's still listed on BT, always a good sign.

Thanks for these replies, they seem very helpful. The collection has several images of 40 Squadron RAF and I would really like to try to obtain them.

Rob, I am not sure about phoning Peter Green directly, it seems a bit intrusive but I would certainly like to email him if you have his address. Please PM me if you can help.

As for the other lead I will try FlyPast and the IWM to see if they can help.

Thanks for your replies

40 Squadron being a particular interest of mine, as author of the squadron history, I'd be interested in learning of your links with, or interest in, the squadron.

Have a look at the IWM site (go through to the online search facility and search for 40 Squadron photos). Not all are listed on the public site (if you visit the photo archive you'll find more on their internal database), but it might give you an idea of what they have. As I say though, if there is nothing on the public site, dont take that as the full catalogue.
