    Default ACM Longmore OBE, KCB, DSO, AFC, MID

    This is one of my favourites. It is the jacket of Air Chief Marshal Longmore who started his career in the Royal Navy and was the fourth military aviator in the UK. He was obviously a part of the RNAS and when the RNAS and RFC were combined in 1918 he stayed with the RAF. He is the man who taught Trenchard how to fly. I am in the midst of a cleaning so his belt is off and I still havn't dug out his ACM shoulder straps so you have to settle for his Air Marshall straps. All of his ribbons and his brevet are held on by snaps for easy removal for cleaning.

    Hi Steven,

    Yes I have a few more... After I get back from the SOS I will be able to dig some more out. Right now I am prepping for that.


    Cheers

    Hi Gary, in my ignorance I had not heard of him, but I most certainly have heard of Lord Trenchard. Thanks for the education.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    Hmmm....Ignorance is an appellation I would never have (and never will) associated with you!


    Cheers
