I am trying to trace any of my fathers friends who served their National Service in 1950-1952 joining at Padgate. Royal Air Force.
My father is Montagu Norman Crutcher.

Please get in touch if you have any info.

Many thanks

It's unlikely that anyone concerned will just happen by your post.

If you know names you could try the Search facility top right of this page.

Otherwise try contacting eg. the RAF Association

Have a look at Forces Reunited. There are lots of names of people at Abu Sueir and you can click on any names that you recognise.
