Order of the Invisible Ethereal Electron with Crossed Wizard's Wands
Very interesting Ian. I know of nothing like this from US. Somewhere I have my WW2 ration booklet ..occupation: Baby
The UK went through some tough times after that war. I understand that the Queen is ill. God bless her.
Another WW2 paper item........
Many years ago I traded this from a French collector, on the back cover it has "O.C. 451 Sqn. (RAAF) M.E."
The 1943 booklet describes how the RAF fighter pilots were having problems with the FW190 and shows the best ways to overcome it...........
No. 451 Squadron was a Royal Australian Air Force army cooperation and fighter squadron of World War II. It was formed at Bankstown, New South Wales, on 12 February 1941 and began flying operations on 1 July as part of the North African Campaign in Egypt and Libya. No. 451 Squadron was withdrawn for refitting in early January 1942 and spent the remainder of the year performing garrison duties in Syria. In January 1943, it was transferred to Egypt to contribute to local air defence but saw almost no combat.
The squadron returned to combat in April 1944 when, operating from bases in Corsica, it took part in the Italian Campaign and Allied invasion of Southern France until September. No. 451 Squadron moved to Italy between September and October 1944, but was transferred to the United Kingdom in November. From January to April 1945, it took part in the liberation of Europe by escorting Allied bomber units and conducting air strikes against German V-2 rocket sites and transportation targets. Following the war, the squadron was deployed to Germany from September 1945 as part of the Allied occupation forces.
