    Hi guys, while clearing out my loft I came across a box with some photos taken during my grandfathers service in the Far East (primarily Burma, India and Ceylon). I have been trying to find as much info about his time as I can, and so far I have been informed that due to his time in Ceylon, and photos of the Hurricane, it is likely he served with 17 squadron. Anyway, I don't know whether they'd be of interest to anybody, but you never know. So here you go.
