Anyone have an answer??

Did 654 Sqn, or a flight of the sqn, use Harewood Barracks as a base?

have just returned from a short weekend in wales,[xmass presents delivered],computer fault fixed,now down to some work,paul,as i said i first became involved with army aviation in 1971 iwas posted to 655 sqn in detmold,i personaly dont remember a sqn at harewood bks,the avn flt/sqn for hq 1 br corps was for some reason stationed at detmold,any flt at harewood bks could have been the rac regiments air troop,there is a google book[books.google.co.uk/boo...&9=&f=true] ihope that gets you there,please do not take what is in this book,or indeed my answer as definitive,some of the aviation regiments dates of formation are a bit iffy.if still not satisfied the curator at the army flying museam may be of more help,dave.

Thanks Dave. I know you told me that before, but I was hoping that another AAC member (or attached) would pick it up.

I think I will have a cravk at the AAC Museum, although I tried once before and got nowhere, not even a reply.

Would you have another try at sending the link to the book again please, or just the title, and i wil take it from there.

Paul.
