    Hi Guys,

    I just got this today, and would need some help on this particular group photo.

    I have a few questions:

    1.) Which regiment were they in? Queen's Own 24th London based on the cap badge?

    2.) Were they part of the 8th Army?

    3.) There is one individual with a Navigator's wing. A pilot?

    Thank you and regards,
    Taka

    They are all from different units and wearin 1949 pattern battledress - so not before then date wise, so probably on a course of some description. The details on the picture are too poor to tell much. The guy with the navigator is not a pilot, he's by the nature of his badge a navigator. He is in army uniform - from the looks of his cap badge the Queens E. Surrey Regt. Probably competed a tour of ops, was released from the RAF and then remustered in the armypostwar, he'd be entitled to wear his nav wing as it is a qualified trade.
