My Father, Henry Sidney Ellis joined the RAF as a Halton engineering apprentice in (I believe) 1926 and retired Sq Ldr H S Ellis M.B.E in 1966. I have a picture of him as an apprentice with a figure 4 above his cap badge. I'd like to know what the figure 4 denotes - Entry, block number or what. He lived near Gloucester when retired and was a member of the Association. Can anyone help?

Hi, I am researching my wife's grandfather. Herbert Ashton Clark (562059). He joined the Apprentice Scheme in January 1928 and I believe graduated in 1930.

He was in Squadron A, No. 1 Apprentice Wing and lived in Room 1, Block 13.

I am trying to find any relevant documents that could relate to him.

He ended up as a pilot with 37 Squadron during the war and progressed to the rank of Wing Commander with DSO and DFC.

Any help would be gratefully received.

ps I noted that the passing out parades link did not appear to work.

Thanks

Nick

Hi, My Grandfather Thomas latham was one of the 34th intake and graduated in 1939. I have already been in touch with min (Museum).

Just wondered if there are any photo's avaialble to look at from those years, or if anyone has any from that period. He was a boxer and represented his squadron , wing and RAF Halton in a match against RAF Cranwell.

Kind Regards
Mark Sewell

I am the secretary of Sudbury (Suffolk) Grammar School Old Boys Association and we are researching Old Boys and Staff who served in the Second World War. Flying Officer John Roughley(73376) taught science at our school after the War. He had been engineering Officer with 301 Polish Bomber Squadron. We understand he had been commissioned from the ranks and wonder did he train at Halton. Could you point me in the direction of any archive which might give information on him.
Thank You
Colin Grwood
