Hello all,
Trying to find information about Aubrey Clayphan He was a navigator on Vulcans based at Scampton and a good friend of my late grandfather. Does anyone have any info about him? He was also my mothers godfather.

Long gone; there may have been a thread dedicated to him, but he certainly features on 230 Course South Cerney where he taught. There were nice comments from my late chum 4PON4PIN.

Thank you for the reply JENKINS. Sorry to hear that. I'll see if I can find that thread.

Lancs237,
I’m no whiz on this site but if you type in Clayphan in the top right hand corner(ish) Search window it’ll give you at least two threads to search.
On both the 230 course and the RAF Waddington 1960 -83 etc threads type in again Clayphan in the ‘search this thread’ box itself (on the yellow bar) and it’ll give you all the references to Aubrey on each thread.
Good Luck
(I only knew him slightly at both S Cerney and on Victors but was never on the same squadron)

I seem to recall that Aubrey's son reported the loss of his father on here and mentioned how touched he ( Aubrey ) had been by the kind comments some posters, particularly former South Cerney cadets, had made about him.

Thank you Alex,
I believe you have spoken to my Mother as I was enquiring on primarily on her behalf and we were both sorry to hear had passed away. My mother always spoke very fondly of him. She asked me to pass on her thanks and you have answered all her questions. She often wondered what became of him and your mother.
Best wishes ,
Stephen
