I'm looking for anyone who may have worked with or was taught by my late father who was at RAF Halton from the mid 70's to early 90's.
His name was Michael (Mike) Charles Adams (BEM) who after his retirement from the RAF in 1976 became a Civillian Instructor in propulsion with Apprentice No. 1 School of Technical training at RAF Halton and then finally at RAF Cosford.
He very sadly died in August of this year after a relatively short but aggressive illness and I would be interested to speak to any of his former colleagues or students.
Thanks in advance.

Still no mention of the 300 entries, seems like we are the forgotten entries.

I would just like to record a note of thanks to Clive Brooks (93rd) - Webmaster for the Old Haltonian Website, for his prompt response to a query I made concerning the Tribute (Gallantry Awards) section.

Very much appreciated.

John Smith (92nd).

Hi there all,
I am trying to find any information regarding Thomas Barker Leigh, Stalag Luft 111, and his part in the escape and his murder by the Gestapo. Any information will at all will help, I know he had a sister in the UK somewhere.

Hi my late father, David Alan Schofield was an old haltonian (approx 1946 intake) and attended many reunions. Is there a members publication where I can have an obituary published?
Best wishes,

John Schofield

I am working on my family tree and would appreciate if you are able to help with information relating to my father's time at Halton. His S/No was 564788 - he joined 4 Wing on 2/09/1930 & passed out A/C1 on 31/12/1933. I have his service records but as usual initial training is covered by 2 line entries. I myself was a Locking apprentice Jan 1962 to Dec 1964 & was demobbed in 1985. For your records I do have one photo with him at Halton which I can send to you. Obviously I do not know his entry number.

Please forgive if this is inappropriate, but I thought some members may wish to be advised that my Father, James (Jimmy) Law, from Kintore, Aberdeenshire sadly passed away on 31 August 2017, one day short of his 96th birthday.
An ex-Brat (36th Entry in 1937, S/N 571624, IIRC) he was always fiercely proud of his Halton and RAF service days - where he met my Mother (Dorothy Marie Parker, WAAF) in Iraq. Sadly she only made it to 1956.

He has carried his 'Halton Wheel'on his keyring for many years and I'd like to have an image of this engraved on his headstone.

Please can anyone advise if this would be in order and if possible where I might obtain an image which could be used to this end?

My late dad John King (575533) was in the 39th Entry and went to RAF Halton No 1 School of Technical Training - Apprentice School on the 17th January 1939. He has left me his photo album and notes on his subsequent career in the RAF and Fleet Air Arm until 1948. I am writing up his story and would be interested in tracking down any pals of his from the 39th Entry. I have put some of his pics on Flickr. Email me for a link as HTML not allowed on here.

Dad sadly passed away in July 2013.

Best wishes to all,

Tim King
