I have just received this email from Rob.

“I Wonder if you can help me out regarding a photo I found in my father’s collection

The attached is a photo of a number of RAF Officers, clearly having a good time in the mess but I think Group Captain Syd Clayton is holding a 249 Squadron badge ?

I was wondering if you can see what the connection is as I am a bit confused.

Some background;

The photo was taken some time between 1950 – 1955 Names on the back are Dennis Founds, Roy Haydn? Ned Sparks, (I Vaughan) and Norman Clayton Any info on whom these are would be well received. My father is 2nd on the right (I Vaughan, not named) and he was based in RAF St Athan and I assume the dinner was there but I see a link to 249 Sq. (unless the aircraft were being maintained there).”

Rob Vaughan

If anyone can give info on this query please let me know
