Photographs of RAF Police Flights

If you don't have access to a scanner then you can post them to me (address in the Directory) BUT I cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage in the post AND I will require postage and an envelope to return them to you. Obviously all details about the picture as well as your details will be required whichever way you chose to send them.

19 Basic Police Course, RAF Netheravon (May - July 1953). 
It has been suggested by a couple of members that perhaps if old photographs were shown on the site, maybe a few memories will be jogged. I am perfectly willing to do this but there are conditions. If you can scan them yourself and then email them to me, then fine, but they must be in jpeg format and no bigger than 100Kb if possible (although I can sometimes reduce them if they are twice this size).

The local ATC Squadron helps me, as the local RAFA Branch Wings Appeal Organiser, to collect money on the B of B week-end each year.
This year they asked if I would wear the white beret and take the salute on their March-Past after the Church Parade at Plumtree, Nottingham on Sunday 16 Sep.
Being a shy sort of bloke, I took a few nano-seconds to agree.

From Dave Swaithe

On the 15 Oct 81 the then CPM RAF Germany Gp Capt Jim Sharpe died in his staff car on the way to RAG Bruggen to present the prizes for the RAF Police Germany Golf Championships. His widow, Mrs Elizabeth (Betty) Sharpe, asked that a Soccer Memorial Trophy in his name be contested for annually between the RAF Police (Germany) and the RAF Regiment (Germany) due to the fact that he had served with both branches during his career. That match took place on 12 Mar 82 and the photo shows the team, and yours truly the RAFP (Germany) Manager, who competed for and won that inaugral match 2 - 0.



From Ian Clingan

Having gone up into the attic I came back with a couple of samples from "222" Steamer Point. First two show the extent of the 1967 flood looking down from "222" to the mess area and sports ground. The third shows the normal view with the school bus escort taking place.

And finally anyone remember Ishmal and Mahmood?
