In The Library: Photo Wall

By Don Allen

In the reading area of the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library there are comfy chairs and tables where you can sit and read a book or talk with friends. On the wall behind you stands a large wall plastered with a collage of photographs from World War II and the 2nd Air Division. The actual photographs can be found on our Digital Archives (www.2ndair.org.uk/digitalarchive), and I’ll leave most of them unidentified in this post so you can make a scavenger hunt game out of it if you’d like. However, I am going to post a few pictures of the wall here and identify some of the individual photos, one of a person which I’m sure most of you will recognize!
