THROUGH THEIR EYES
RAF Spitfire pilots photo album
Here I offer a cd containing around 47 high res ( 1200 dpi scans ) from an original photograph album which belonged to Pilot G. Webster who appears to have flown with 52 Squadron and then transferred to 600 Squadron. (If anyone is able to provide further details of his service I would love to know more ) . I have also scanned the album pages with captions and also scanned a few newspaper clippings, which relate to his service and an official invitation to the mans parents, when the Queen visited the 600 squadron at Biggin Hill 29th oct 1949.( there are 2 nice photos showing the then Queen walking in front of Spitfires ) .
I believe he served with 52 squadron during late WW2 flying Douglas Dakotas ..and then shortly after WW2 served with 600 squadron circa 1946-1949 ..he may well have also flown Gloster meteor jet fighters . There are 2 photos of Douglas Dakotas in India ...a total of 11 photos showing spitfires and 3 of Gloster Meteors .
One nice photo was taken above RAF Thorney island ..runways etc clearly seen ...Also some good photos of uniformed RAF Airmen at rest many of these were taken at Thorney Island .
Locations of photos taken within the album include India, Burma, Hong Kong , Cherbourg , Tangmere and RAF Thorney Island .
