The Scrapbook of Royal Air Force Central Band U.S. Tour 1944/45
   The source of this page is a very large scrapbook of the tour which had been considered 'lost' a long time ago. It came into the possession of a retired gentleman, who was at one time in charge of the RAF Museum. He realized the importance of the collection and sent to the RAF Archive.
