  1. Hi Guys I have a friend who is looking at his father's war service. He served in F Sqn/2 Wing the Glider Pilot Regiment. He qualified as a 2nd pilot in May 1944 and a 1st Pilot in July 1945. He was never more than L/Cpl and his trade is shown as "Clerk" He was 5886646 L/Cpl George Edwards. Son says he has 39/45 Star and F&G Star etc. This does not seem logical to me??? Any Suggestions? Eddie

    Remember also that the red suit worn by Santa Claus was invented by Coca Cola - previously he had always been shown in green!
  3. Hi Guys I am seeking any military maps of either Oman or Aden, in particular 1:100 000, 1:50 000 or 1:25 000. All periods, new/used/battered! Eddie
  4. Good Morning all I collect military maps of the Middle East. I have a growing collection but would like to grow it some more.I have complete 1:50,000 coverage of Lebanon, some 1920's OS 1 in to the mile sheets for Jordan, and quite a few 1:100,000 of Oman. Some Aden in various scales etc. Not really interested in aviation maps but I do have some escape maps.Anyone know of any sources and is there a forum that covers this form of madness? I have no idea at all where those random images came from??? They are not mine and I don't recognise them. Weird.
  5. The best way is to go to this site and send in an application for his service record, https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records/overview Eddie
