He was called up with the first batch of the 19 year age group and did his initial training at Padgate and technical training at Halton as a Flight Mechanic (Air Frames).

“The unit was run on a 3 flight basis: ‘A’ flight flying Lockheed Hudson aircraft was concerned with the training of pilots; ‘B’ flight flying Airspeed Oxford and Avro Anson aircraft trained Wireless Operators, Navigators and Air Gunners. There was also a Fairey Battle aircraft on site for air to air target towing operators for air gunner training.”

 He doesn’t tell us the aircraft used by ‘C’ flight.
