The following mail was received from Dr Hugh D. Loxdale, Harpenden, Herts.
Phyllis M. Duke (1921-70) WAAF. My late mother, Phyllis M. Duke (1921-70) was a Morse Operator at Mountbatten Station, Plymouth, South Devon from 1941- 46.    I recently foundPhyllis M. Duke (1921-70) WAAF. some pictures of her and friends in her old photograph album of the period, as attached.    I have no idea who the aircrew are in the group photo, but if  this picture were posted on your website, someone may perhaps be able to identify them.    These men could well be from a Royal Australian Air Force Squadron, which was operating Sunderland aircraft from Mountbatten in the period my mother was there.    Some, I assume, were her fSunderland crew at Mount Batten.riends.    One, dare I say, may be the boyfriend (name unknown) whom she nearly married at the end of the war, but in the end, she changed her mind and married my father, John D. Loxdale (1916-93) instead! 

With best wishes, Yours sincerely, Hugh Loxdale

Webmaster comment :  No 10 Squadron Royal Australian Air Force were resident at Mount Batten during this period.  No 461 Squadron were based Mount Batten Apr-Aug 1942.  Perhaps there's a former Squadron member recognises a face?
