View Full Version : RAF in Chittagong?

22nd April 2014, 14:47
Hello everyone. Would anyone out there happen to know of any information about 224 Group Headquarters in Chittagong - where exactly they were, what they looked like (i.e. photographs), personal accounts/reminiscences of people who were stationed there? I'm trying to write an account of my grandfather's war; it's going slowly - partly through lack of time but moreso through lack of information (my grandfather didn't leave much behind to tell us about his war) and I'd love to be able to give a better impression of the town in which he spent a great portion of his time in the Far East. If anyone could direct me to any useful resources, I would hugely appreciate it. Many thanks indeed in advance.

Only information I can share on Chittagong is the relevant page from an "Air Routes" briefing booklet that gives the layout of the airfield.
