RAF MARINE CRAFT PICTURES and Events

I am looking for any Photos of RAF Marine craft of all types in all conditions and places....no matter how remote or obscure if they are tucked away in the corner of a dock where your vessel takes pride of place don't worry if the RAF Launch or Vessel is visible I will be happy.....I will post regular pictures of the different types of launch in differing aspects ...to try to keep this thread alive, I do realise that the main body of this group is Larger ships of all funnels but I hope I can find some pics that may be hiding out there of whatever quality. Regards to all

Here is a photograph that I personally took while on holiday with My Parents in Cornwall in the early Fifties it is taken from Customs house Quay in Falmouth and pictures the Pinnace line of the older 60ft GS Pinnaces and the Newer Mk11 63ft Pinnaces there are some other pics on this site of the same subject and very similar time frame but I think this one is better and I was only a nipper with a Kodak .....lol

Have you any Photo's of those Launches and yourself perhaps that we can see....???? I am sure some of my friends within the RAF Marine Craft club and Facebook Page would love to see them as very likely they are similar to our own types and the wartime ones will definitely be the same....This is a 63 ft Pinnace that I served on in Falmouth and I am on the deck tallest in the line .....lol we are entering Falmouth Harbour and are displaying our flag recognition hoist of...GBXB

G'Day Mate I was crew on 1372 in Falmouth early 1971 we then moved onto 1374 which had just had a major refit she 74 is now a Heritage vessel in Hendon Museum...they were my Favourite launch not as fast as the RTTL's but solid and comfortable in any sea.
