Looking for the name of the CO of Airborne Forces Experimental Establishment (A.F.E.E.)

Good evening to all members.

Am trying to find the name of the C.O. of the Airborne Forces Experimental Establishment (A.F.E.E.).

I do have a Wing Commander DUDER which I suppose or believe, may be Wing Commander Derek Harvey Duder, DSO, DFC, MiD (RAFO 70192); but I can not confirm this.

Was he indeed the C.O.?

Adriano

MODERATORS: Sorry for not checking the correct Forum. I made a mistake adding here, instead of the Allied Forum.

Tim Jenkins wrote a thesis on the evolution of British airborne forces which was later worked into a book. The thesis is here:

https://etheses.bham.ac.uk/id/eprint...nkins14PhD.pdf

One name he mentions is L. G. (Leslie Gorden) Harvey. http://www.rafweb.org/Biographies/Harvey_LG.htm

Well based on what is here

https://www.yorkshire-aircraft.co.uk...43/dt736d.html


"In 1944 he was commanding 298 Squadron SOE flying Halifaxes, towing gliders in support of the airborne assaults."

I would image yes...

SWANK and PAUL,

SWANK: Sent you a private message. The thesis link gave me a true North and some references (ORB) to check. MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE for that!
PAUL: Yes, I believe that by circa mid 1945, Wing Commander DUDER was indeed the CO of the AFEE; but I do not have yet found anything confirming. The airman I am writing about just recorded the Family name and rank, not the medals along....However, the chances are great that this is the same person.

Humbly yours,
Adriano

Rolland,

This Board (Toch) do permit sending to you an e-mail. I sent you an e-mail (maybe on the SPAM box) on the 22nd June.

Since I do not have your contact, maybe we can talk via: baumgartner_asv@yahoo.com.br

My gratitude for your kind answer and trying to contact. I deleted some messages on the PM Box now. Sorry for that.

Adriano
