Hi,
Were you at RAF Halton as an apprentice during years 1953 to 1956. If so, can you remember Ken Harding an apprentice in the engines section. He left Chatham Tech High School for boys to serve at RAF Halton. He appears to be a long lost relative, and am trying to find any information about him from his apprenticeship time until now. Any help or information, however little, will be very much welcome.
Many thanks for any help.
Colin.

PS, I have tried the 7T5 Club, he is listed as NOT FOUND.

Hi Andysmum,
many thanks for your reply. I knew he was at RAF Halton and about the 7T5 club. there are photos of him on that site. What I am trying to establish is, his whereabouts from the time he left Halton, until now.
Colin.

First post by Colin in Jan 2012 - 'Nudged' on 6 Jan 2014.

Although the site guidelines do state that duplicate threads should not be posted, many members don't browse the find Living Relatives board.

Extracted from that which could be appropriate to the Military Chat aspect.

Hi all, another bit of info. Kenneth was an apprentice at RAF Halton 1953 - 1956, working on engines. He was billeted in room 11/2. This intake of apprentices have formed their own club and it's called the 7T5 Club. Maybe, this will jog a memory of any of his fellow apprentices.Still searching.
......................
Rather than 'military inclined members repeat record searches, please read and add any results to the 'looking for' thread. Lets leave this one alone to attract people who might have had an RAF connection and knew Ken

Thank you

Colin

Hi Colin, previously commented, I was at Halton,and Cosford, in 51 to 52.
message may have gone astray.
must be many people out there that were at Halton at that time, Probably on forces re-united.
For Example :"We found 17 Ken Harding's in the Forces Reunited database."
