Sqn Ldr Bryan W. Smithers, DFC, 1918-2004


Keith Vaughan (Royal Air Force Photographers’ Association) has written the first part of a career history about Sqn Ldr Bryan W. Smithers, DFC, 1918-2004, whose first posting was to No.IV Sqn, 1939-40. Thirty years later Keith worked closely with him on African aerial survey projects in the air and on the ground.

Included is an illustrated wartime newspaper article detailing operational training and methods. A probable explanation of a photograph from your gallery is featured, as well as some transcripts of the Operational Record Books.
