RAF Shinfield Park

Headquarters Flying Training Command 

(27th May 1940 - 1st June 1968)

Early 50’s photos

The photos below were sent by Greg North (Email on 22nd June 2020) whose son purchased them from eBay. Can anyone help with identifying anyone in them?

Received this email from Alan Causon on 23 June 2020

Hello Andre, I forwarded the Email and photos to Roy Whiteman who recognised Peter Davies in one of the photos and I am sure that if you could mention this on your Blog that if interested Peter Davies would be pleased to contact Roy again. 

If so I can supply details for him. Two other lads also would have known Roy. They are Peter Johnson and John French. The 3 of them were Rugby Players who eventually worked for Shell. 

The late Sir Peter Yarranton became their Boss. The Lads I have mentioned all played for Shinfield Park Rugby Team and were well known to Sir Peter Yarranton as he was also stationed at Shinfield during their National Service.
