I don't know why I looked at your list of pilots, must be a quiet Sunday morning - but lo and behold I recognised the name E G Waddingham, 'Ed the Wad' as he was known on 30 Squadron. He was a Herc' skipper on 30 at Fairford and then Lyneham from '68 to at least late '73 when I left. I think he had been on Hastings in Akrotiri prior to the Herc'. He was a Spec' Aircrew Sqn Ldr and very pleasant man to fly with.
There were a few photos of him on the '60 years of the Hercules' thread' on Prune.
Edit - just noticed that his son had already placed them above - I'd not noticed them before!
