WW2 Photo album RAF 215 Squadron in India 1942-1945
Here I offer a DVD containing 225 high resolution scans ( 1200 dpi ) produced from an original WW2 photo album ....I have also added a few scans of the original owners RAF Service book , his birth certificate , some Christmas messages sent home while in India and a few other certificates .
The album belonged to Flight Mechanic Henry Lorraine 1371854 LAC Fitter II Airframe . The album covers Henry's service in India with 215 Squadron 1942-1945 .The album contains 19 photos of RAF planes ..10 of which are 215 Sqd Wellington bombers ..other planes include.. a Liberator , Hudson , Mohawk , Beaufort , Dakota , Mosquito , Vickers Valentia and a De Havilland Rapide ....." All planes I have serviced".
One photo shows a line of paratroopers about to enter a Wellington . It appears that the Squadron also had a role in the training Gurkha paratroopers . Henry is seen in many photos with other members of 215 squadron. There are also lots of photos taken of street scenes and the local people going about their daily lives in India.....some really charming photos .
