2022-06-02 Brian Field N/A Tom Davies N/A I have just read an article by a Tom Davies who once lived in Windsor. If is the same guy perhaps we could touch base in an email Many Thanks Brian Field Valley Mildenhall Windsor
2022-06-03 Michael Owen 28 Bryan Clark 27 I just wish to thank Bryan for his contribution regarding Peter Corfield in the latest newsletter. I knew Peter on and off over the years and was most saddened to hear of his death from an undisclosed illness.
2022-06-08 Brian Spurway Sqn Ldr RAF(Rtd) N/A Mike Hole N/A In July 1960, as a Cpl airframe fitter, I was posted to join 1325 (Dakota) Flight at Christmas Island; in the event because the British Nuclear Testing (Operation Grapple) had come to a halt I ended up remaining at RAF Changi, along with some thirty others, all aircraft tradesmen bar one: Cpl Michael (Mike) Hole who was to run the Flight's Admin Office for the single year that we were to remain at Changi. To the best of my knowledge Mike had been an Admin Apprentice; he was then in his early twenties, as was I, so my guess is that his training would have been around about 1955. I was an Aircraft Apprentice (81st Entry) 1955/58 and am now aged 83, so I would guess he to be somewhere round about 85; I realise that the chances of making contact are slight, but Hey, if one doesn't try . . . etc. Thank you. Kind regards, Brian.
2022-10-11 Paul Rowse N/A Jeffery Nunley 303 Jeff Nunley was a colleague and good friend whilst serving in the P2 section at RAF Uxbridge in the late 1960's or early 70's. I haven't seen or spoken to him since so would be absolutely delighted if there was some means of getting back in touch with him again after all this time. Any assistance or advice the Association may be able to provide would be very much appreciated. Thank you. Paul Rowse, Plymouth (ex 48th entry Boy Entrant)

2023-08-24 Bryan Peter Hoare 307 William Beale N/A I received a message from Elizabeth Thatcher: Hello! I wonder if you can help me trace an RAF Officer who may have begun his service life in clerical administration from 1922 in either South or West Ruislip. His name is William (Bill) Beale. He retired as a [Spitfire] Squadron Leader (admin, not flight). Still based around either Ruislip or moved to the RAF records centre. Gloucester. Long shot I know but would be grateful for any help. Many thanks.
2023-10-19 Alan H F Smith 5th Any surviving members of the Clk Accts. Admin Apprentices. 5th I know there are probably few of us still surviving as we are all in our 90's . In particular Ron Phillips and Reg Povey are names that come to my memory.
2023-12-06 Geof "Jesse" Jmes 301, RAF Halton, 1964 David NEEHAM 301 We were Administrative Apprentices (Medical) at RAF Halton in 1964. After passing out, we were posted from Halton, to RAF (Hospital) Wroughton. We became good mates at Wroughton. Dave came from near Barnstable. We went there when on leave from Wroughton. I last saw Dave in May 1965. I have always wondered about Dave and what he did with his life. I have been trying to find him for some time, but with no success. I now live in Queensland, Australia. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it greatly.......Geof James
2024-04-23 James Fagan 306th Anyone from the 306th Clk Secs 306th I recall all of the names but understand that some have passed over. After Hereford I was posted to RAF Waddington where I met my first wife. Anyway that followed by joining the Attestation gang based at RAF Stafford which I think was the start of my disillusion with getting any promotion. So I stuck it out until 1973 and paid the £250 to get out. To be honest it was the right decision and I have never looked back. I'm now retired with my second wife here in Somerset and I recall Derek Bunce as he was two beds down from me. But are there any other Clk Secs out there from the 306th?
