E Flowers Medal/Logbook Grouping. Lovely medal collection, consisting of campaign medals and standard war medals. Comes with original named logbook, dated inside from 1943 till 1945. E flowers enlisted on 17/1/1942 as an AC2 and trained as a wireless operator. He went to wireless and air gunnery training schools in 1943 at RAF Yatesbury. He then went out to No. U at RAF Gianaclis in Egypt and flew with 500 Squadron before moving to 22 squadron SAAF (South Africa Air Force) in July 1944 who he saw the out the end of the war with. For most of his operations with 22 squadron SAAF he flew in a Ventura aircraft, where they carried out Air sea rescue patrols and missions, convoy escorts, anti submarine patrols and anti U-boat patrols, schnorkel sweeps, sub bombing training and various other training flights. The logbook is kept upto April 1945 with approximately 38 pages filled including his training. Further to the back is some written assessments and practise drills he carried out including dinghy training, bailing out etc. Some soiling and water damage to the cover of the logbook but all the pages are in good legible condition. There is a couple of photos possibly taken by Flowers of Ventura aircraft in flight, and what I believe is a picture of his crew. Unfortunately it is slightly blurry and I do not know which airmen is Flowers himself, but it is safe to assume he is one of them. There is Flowers original SAAF insignia, a wireless badge and navigators brevet Included with the medals as is the original box and paperwork. The medals themselves in lovely condition, mounted on a board for display. Some soiling to the ribbons. His original airmans service and paybook is included, but it is worse for wear missing the front and rear covers. It has his personal details, enlistment details, RAF trade details, what qualifications he attained whilst in the RAF, his medical records and innoculations, permits and passes. And finally his last will and testament, interestingly not filled out. There is also his original RAF flying clothing card detailing what flying equipment he was issued, flying helmet, mask, gloves etc. He was interestingly issued a K-dinghy set to attach to his observer parachute. Finally there is a newspaper cutting and air navigation booklet to complete the collection. Overall a lovely medal/logbook grouping with lovely extra items, photos. Should be ideal to carry out extra research should you wish. Perfect for any RAF collection, museum display or medal/logbook collector.
