    Comment: Hello Dave,

    Congratulations on your interesting career and book Legends and Hero’s. I was interested learn some of the early events e.g. Sgt Laws and the Photographic School in Farnborough

    My grandfather would undoubtedly pass through this school sometime 1916 or 1917, and he was subsequently posted to the Amiens sector in France in November 1917. He was there for the last German offensive and the counterattack in June and 100 days etc. Squadrons seem to have been moved and exchanged Wings etc. but he spoke mostly of 15th Wing comprising 3rd Australian, 7, 8, 35 and 82 squadrons. He knew Leigh Mallory and West VC to name just two prominent RFC officers.
