Photograph – No 9 Phot 2s course with MPP’s and Tripods – 1966

This photograph is of the phots. on No. 9 Phot 2’s course.

The picture was taken by Bob Pearce for an article in ‘Flight Magazine’. Bob kept the magazine for more than fifty years and eventually sent it to Tony Darbyshire in 2019 from his home in Jacksonville, Florida.

The building behind is RNSOP, HMS Fulmar, RNAS Lossiemouth.

The article from the magazine is also reproduced. At the back of the magazine is another short article from an interview with Lt. Cdr. Harry Lipscombe about phots. and their course experiences.

The phots. we recognise in the picture are:
