My name is John Davan, 3130040, and I arrived at Wilmslow from Padgate in the November of 1950, and still vividly remember the faces of the two DI's and the Sergeant. Everyone signed the back of the photo, E. Catten, Roy Davies, E. Craig, L. Clarke, Ivor Anderson, E. Bennett, Cooper, Gwyn Davies, Denis Bolland, Alec Chaney, Betts, plus others I can't read. From there I went to Hednesford and having volunteered to go overseas ended up in Ismailia as an on the job Fighter Plotter. Not a bad time, lots of memories.
