A souvenir edited by Andy Ross from professional photographs
My father was an aircraft engineer in the years before and during World War 2. He worked at Fairey Aviation in England before the war and then worked with the Royal Air Force, first in Egypt and then in India, where he had the equivalent rank of squadron leader.
As a contributor to the British air war and an expert on aviation technology, he took pride in the strength and
achievements of the British aviation industry. The following three images illustrate some of the most successful
products of that industry.
All these aircraft were powered by the Rolls-Royce Merlin, one of the best aero-engines of those years.
