[underlined] 25th April 1944 [/underlined]
On the 2ND March 1944 I was detailed by S/Ldr Crowley (Officer i/c Signals, RAF Bicester) to take six receivers 1132 to RAF West Drayton, and there to exchange same for six 1132 recivers [sic] of a modified type
On arrival at West Drayton I was interviewed by F/Lt Spooner, who arranged for the necessary exchange to be made. I was then instructed by one of F/Lt. Spooner’s clerks to take the receivers I had brought with me, to a small wooden building. This building was situated at the back of the hangar, which stands next to F/Lt Spooner’s office.
I was met there by a corporal (name unknown) who helped me to unload the six receivers I had brought with me [deleted] to a small [/deleted] from my van. These were then stored in the wooden building, from whence six receivers 1132 of the modified type were drawn, and given into my charge.
I then returned with these to Bicester.
