PostSubject: Berlin 1945-1952   29/1/2009, 11:33

I am looking for any information about my grandfather James A.N. McEwan.
After spending the first world war fighting in the middle east with the honourable artillery company he joined the RAFVR from 1941 to 1948.
Initially he served in Torquay with the I.T.W.'s rising to the rank of Wing Commander. Thereafter he went to Berlin in July 1945. I am not sure whether he went as part of the military government then or not. However he left the RAF in 1948 but remained in Berlin until 1952. He was the senior economic advisor to the British Military Government and was on the Trade and Industry Cttee of the allied Kommandatura but I am not sure if that was all the time or only after he left the RAF in 1948. My family told me that he was the only RAF man chosen by Monty for the Military Govt. He was later awarded the OBE for services during the airlift.
He was born in 1896 and died in 1964 but I knew him well and from papers he left, he was obviously very well regarded by German Industry.
