Description:A young Royal Navy Air Fitter with the Fleet Air Arm poses on hut steps at RAF Hednesford during World War 2. RAF Hednesford was a training establishment.

It is difficult to discern the letter below the four-bladed propellor arm patch which identifies the wearer's specialisation. ‘A’ would signify Airframe, ‘E’ Engine, ‘L’ Electrical; and ‘O’ Ordnance.
