My Father, Albert Andrew Heighington served as a wireless/air gunner during WW II

At the beginning of 1943, anti-blockade runner patrols were flown, and in July the Sqandron converted to Liberators. During March 1944 the Sqandron's aircraft made one of the longest Sqandron moves of the war, flying from YUNDUM, WEST AFRICA to MADRAS INDIA. The Squadron commenced convoy escort operations in the Bay of Bengal, and various sorties were flown off the West coast of India, including, anti-shipping and anti-U-boat patrols, and Air/Sea rescue searches.

He served with the rank of Sergeant and retired at the end of the WAR as a Flying Officer.

During his tour of Africa and India, he took photos to send home. Here is A.A. Heighington in New Delhi with his buddies watching a Snake Charmer. Notice the Street scape. The left side of photo is a bit blurred but then photography in these conditions was a bit crude.
