Photographs of Mervyn Hulland, flight engineer

These photographs were sent by Steve Hulland, Mervyn’s son.  Mervyn worked for Fairey Air Surveys/Fairey Surveys from about 1955 to 1966, when the family emigrated to South Africa.  They came back a few years later, and Mervyn worked on development for deHavilland on the TSR2 in Bristol, and also for Atlas Aircraft Corporation on the Impala.

Most of the photographs are unlabelled, but quite a few appear to have been taken in Kenya.  Any help identifying places or people would be appreciated.

Libyan survey 1972-73 – photos from Len Sellwood

These are photographs of the road survey Faireys carried out in 1972-73 from the Gulf of Sirte to Sebha, about 650 kms.  Many thanks to Len for sending them.

“Besides being cold and sand blasted, one memory sticks out. On Christmas morning when we came out of the mess tent after breakfast all the Drivers and helpers were lined up to shake hands and wish us a Happy Christmas – very touching.”

Dakota in Clyde livery

Roger Laffoley sent in these photographs of Dakota G-ALWC in Clyde livery, with a note of its history from service with the RAF up to 1982 with Clyde Surveys.  The photographs show what looks like a miniature extra propellor on the fuselage – does anyone know what it is?
