Experiences of an RAF Technician in the post-war years 1946-69

Illustrated with historic photographs this enjoyable memoir contains a wealth of valuable information for historians and researchers as well as offering an enjoyable reading experience to any RAF veteran who remembers the post-war era.

In this entertaining memoir, Alf Commons looks back on an eventful 23-year career with the Royal Air Force from 1946 to 1969. During this time his work as a radio technician took him to a variety of home and overseas postings, including Libya, Cyprus (103 MU, 1959-61), Germany (68 Squadron 1953-55) and Gan (Maldive Islands 1963-64) plus in the UK, Fairford, REU Henlow (Radio Installation Squadron 1956-59) and Coltishall (1961-63 & 1968-69) Stradishall and Abingdon (1964-65).

Written in a good-humoured and readable style, Alf’s recollections will no doubt stir many memories for those who also served in the RAF during the postwar years and his humorous observations and anecdotes about military life are guaranteed to raise many a smile.
