Re(2): simply the best

I have copies of many of the monthly 'CO's Reports written for 36 Sqn by Dad in which he reports briefly on training, maintenance, deployments and morale. You may be interested in a couple of the Morale entries.
Feb 1964: " On taking over command of this squadron my particular impression concerns the very cheerful and willing attitude of all ranks, particularly the ground crew."
June 1964: "Unit morale is most encouraging. Ground crews have worked long hours and at weekends and have shown a most commendable spirit. The morale of all aircrew, and of loadmasters in particular, has benefitted by the presentation of Loadmaster brevets. These are known colloquially as 'L Plates."
May 1965: " The quickening tempo of events in South East Asia has heightened morale and the fitting of armour plate under the crew positions of aircraft destined for the trouble area has done nothing to detract from it."
Cheers, Jenny
