Request for help from the IWM:

I have in the collections of the Imperial War Museum two photographs of a No 72 Squadron Meteor F8, WK749, which if I am correct crashed off the coast of Essex in October 1952. Both these photographs contain individuals who I wish to identify. Do you or any of your association members recognise them? I hope you will be able to help. With regards and many thanks,

 Ian Proctor AMA

The Meteor is Mk8 WK749 coded N.

If you recognise any of the pilots please inform Ian. The membership Sec would also like to know!
