8 RFS (Reserve Flying School), 11 RFS and Glasgow UAS (University Air Squadron)....am I right in thinking that RFS is for those in the reserves, or?
What is University Air Squadron?

Looking for some Scottish Chipmunks, "13" as always, Glasgow is as close by as it gets....😉

Maybe....🤨🤔

RAF Kinloss
RAF Lossiemouth
RAF Grangemouth
RAF Turnhouse
 
Not the Glasgow UAS but the Southampton University Air Squadron. Although no "13" but the "10" was there. It means that the "13' must have been somewhere close.

The Chipmunks of the Oxford UAS seems to be marked with letters ...

Well, all depends on what kind of numbering ( marking ) was used for the GUAS. The pictures of the GUAS Chipmunks taken in 50' I found via the net, suggest it was two-digit numbers.

First plane I ever flew in with the ATC out of Marshall's at Cambridge, UK. I was going to stay with my aunt in Cambridge that night and had no idea where she lived relative to the airfield. As you did in those days I suppose I just assumed I would find a solution. Fortunately we flew over her road and I was able to memorise a walking route. Life was simpler then.
The flight was great. Just mild concern as we came into land and the rev counter dropped to zero. I did not know that it overreacted to a reduction in revs and thought the engine had cut out. Bit low for the parachute strapped to my bum and doubling as a seat to be much use.
