    Default RAFVR (Met) Personnel and the wartime weather ships

    Gentlemen,

    Over the years I've posted a number of threads whilst researching the story of the wartime weather ships and the six RAFVR (Met) personnel who served on them. I have been fortunate in tracing relatives of all the men, although only five are close enough to offer personal information and photographs. Having completed my research you might find their story of interest as it markedly different to those told about other areas of wartime RAF/RAFVR service. It can be found at https://www.rmets.org/sites/default/...._j._booth.pdf

    Nine other RAFVR (Met Branch) airmen also “died at sea” when pax to/from overseas postings in ships which were sunk by U-boats or bombing! Not a safe way to travel!!
