GCI 15082, late 1944, just before the unit was disbanded

Taken from Muir Adair’s collection, this photo of the 4 senior NCOs was taken in late 1944 just before GCI 15082 disbanded. Muir Adair is on the far left, Johnnie Humble is second from the right. If you recognise either of the other men, please let us know!

A photo from Muir Adair’s collection, the 15082 Corporals, probably taken in late 1944. Can anyone identify any of the men?

Another photo from Muir Adair’s collection, taken in late 1944, Jock Reid is second from the left. Muir cannot recall any further details of this photo. Can you help?

Another photo from Muir Adair’s collection, this was taken in late 1944.

    My father, Bill Wiseman, went into Normandy – I believe on DDay +3 – and set up an airfield. He was certainly part of 15082 according to his Air Ministry Form. I think he was F/Lt at this point. I believe he passed through Grandcamp, Issigny and St Lo, and eventually reached Paris at the Liberation. He served in 68 Squadron.
    If anyone has any reminiscence, records or information, my family and I would be very grateful to know. Thank you.

      Good to hear from you, Jan! The more information you can post about your father, the better the chances we can cross-reference his details with what we already know. Do you know what his RAF role was? Do you have any more detail about what he did in setting up an airfield? Which airfield? Did he talk of his training prior to 1944? Do you have any photos of him, taken during the war, ideally in uniform? Did he have particular buddies he spoke about? Do you have a copy of his War Record that you are willing for us to put on the website? Questions, questions, questions, but any information you have might even prompt a memory from those still surviving. David
