Here I offer a cd containing over 150 high resolution scans , produced from an original WW2 photo album .
The album belonged to a RAF Wireless operator / radio op . Cadet David Stewart from Southport , studied at 281 Squadron Air training corps ATC at Woodvale Southport 1941-1942 ..here he learned the skills to become a high speed wireless operator .
He passed out as a wireless operator at Compton Bassett . There is a large group showing around 100 men of No1 Bomber command School of Jungle training based at Youlbury , Oxford 1944 . From here he goes on to a period of service in Calcutta & Bombay in India and then 1945-1947 serves in Air Headquaters Rangoon Burma ..and then on to RAF Station Mingaladon also in Burma with 52 squadron SEAAF South East Asia Air Force .
