I am searching for information about the 40th Entry RAF. Sgt. Edward Ernest TYLER (5764279) was enlisted at 22-08-1939. I am looking for a photo of this man or his Entry. Sgt Tyler died 25-06-1943 when Lancaster Mk.I W4367 crashed near Harderwijk in The Netherlands. He lies buried here.
I am co-writing a book about the 45 fallen airmen of Harderwijk. A lot of information has been found but, no photo.

I am doing research on 45 fallen airmen of WWII that lie buried near my hometown in the Netherlands. One of them is an old boy of RAF Halton. Sgt Edward Ernest Tyler is mentioned on the Roll of Honour, nr 40.
I am trying to give each grave a face by means of a photo.
Are there any photos of Sgt Tyler who was with the 68 entry?

Dear Sirs
I am a collector of scratch built mid twentieth century clocks, and wonder whether I could ask the membership whether they have any knowledge of a clock I recently purchased
It is a fine and complex multi dialled skeleton clock of modernist design with perpetual calendar and mean time
I am writing to you as the large key has an inscription stating 'Diamond Jubilee, 1918 - 1978, Engineering Training Dept'
I have come across one or two 'apprentice pieces' in the past, constructed for example by Royal Dockyard apprentices as gifts for departing individuals
The dates fit in with this perhaps being a clock constructed by RAF Apprentices/ Staff in recognition of the Jubilee in 1978
There is no way of attaching photo's in this contact box, but please feel free to contact me by telephone listed below and I could provide these
Many thanks and best wish's
Yours Sincerely

Mr Peter Macintyre

My father Wg/Cdr 43144 Charles Darwen Stenner, DSO., DFC., was 31st entry at Halton. I notice there is no 31st mentioned, is that because none are alive from that entry. My father died 2006 aged 92.

What has happened to the digitised Entry paper records? A few years back I and one other spent many hours scanning these for the 102nd but now find that all the effort is no longer available to view on the Entries page! Please explain.

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?
