My grandfather (Leonard Walter Elsey) was a career RAF man, his specialism was armaments. I have a photo album of his showing him in the desert in WW2 with the LRDG. My research to date doesn't throw any light on why he was with them! His service record shows: 7/1/42 HQ203 Group (ME Command) 9/2/43 Base Air Reinforcement U (ME Command) 27/08/43 Rear AHQ Desert Air Force (ME Command) See pics from a page in his album titled "Long Ranger Desert Group". Maybe someone recognises some of the faces, or has any other info?
