View Full Version : Gloster Grebe J7530

7th Nov 2006, 16:11

Among my late fathers personal effects I found a lot of photographs from his RAF service days (1929 to 1946). I found three photographs of Gloster Grebes (at leats I think they are), two of them of the same aircraft, J-7530. The aircraft had crash landed very close to what I think is Eastchurch Primary School on the Isle of Sheppey.

I cannot now remember in any great detail what my father told me about this aircraft. I think the accident was in either 1929 or 1930, and so hopefully will not awaken any unhappy memories for anyone after the passing of so many years.

Can anyone advise me how I might find out more about this aicraft, its pilot, and what happened?

If it is still too soon to make such an enquiry, then please tell me and I'll search no further.

Kind regards
