“More Chief’s than Indians”
As you can see from the Ranks of most of the personnel in these BHFU Sqdn Photo’s, there really were more “Chiefs than Indians” at
RAF Aberporth in those days.
(Due no doubt to the fact that we were dealing with VERY expensive live firing trials.)
Where are they Now?
Around 50 years have passed.
ALL have left the RAF.
Most will have retired by now
And many will have attended their
“Final Pay Parade.” .
