Eric was an Instructor at RAF Bridgenorth that for a while hosted the School of Flying Control. Dave Smith has provided these scans of papers and procedures from the School of Flying Control at Watchfield. Eric Mathews served at Watchfield. As they are Foolscap size, Dave has problems scanning them so he has provided part pages and whole pages.
