Hi all,

Is anybody here able to name the commanding officer(s) of 604 Squadron Royal Auxiliary Air Force during 1936?

Thanks,

Actually Chris, whilst we're about it, you wouldn't happen to have a photo of Gabriel would you?

There is a picture of him (out of uniform) in a 1936 edition of Flight magazine (I'm afraid the article has to be loaded a page at a time):

http://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPD...20-%201816.pdf
http://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPD...20-%201817.pdf
http://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPD...20-%201822.pdf
http://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPD...20-%201823.pdf
http://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPD...20-%201824.pdf

The picture is on the second link (the missing pages between links 2 and 3 were adverts)

EDIT: oops, just noticed that there is another picture of him on page 1 too

Chris, do you have any details on his career after 604? I can't seem to find anything more.
