HKAAF | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong



January. Kai Tak.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Monday, January 1, 1951


From memory here are the names from left to right:

  • Cedric Salter,
  • Robin Taylor (See page 94 of Winge​d​ Dragon),
  • K. Bretling,
  • Gordon Randall,
  • Sandy Wigram,​ ​​
  • Lew ​H.L. Mose,​ and
  • Ian Robertson.

I last saw Sandy Wigram near Wellington about 1966. Goodness knows where everyone else is?

It would be wonderful to learn what has happened to everyone – long time ago!

My Aunt Eve Salter was married to Alf Salter in HK and Alf had a son Cedric. Alf was an Stock Market Broker I think and retired in the 50's or Very Early 60's. His son Cedric lived near to Epsom in the later 60's and had 2 or 3 Children to my memory.

Alf had another son who now lives in New Zealand and is in his 80's so Cedric would be in his 90's but I believe he is deceased now. No idea about the family as I have not had contact since the early 70's.

Hope this is of some help.

The captioned officers were said to be the first in the East to earn their HKAAF wings by working their way through the aircraftsman and flying courses. China Mail 21 October 1950 refers.
