Maee Rhu 1939 45

A Memory of Ardpeaton

My late father Bob Bird served with Marine Aircraft Experimental Establishment Rhu
during World War 11. MAEE was a secret wing of the RAF that that tested flying boats and seaplanes. It lost several crew but their sacrifice is not widely known.
I hope to place a Poppy Cross on Rhu war memorial in their memory.
Does anyone have stories of the MAEE for me as I am writing a book on the subject. I can be contacted on 0151 639 6851
