I was wondering if there was any in depth record of ADG history. I'm a current ADG and currently instructing at 1RTU. Before I left 2AFDS the history room was up and running but there was little, if any written information on the history of the mustering. I was recently asked a question from one my recruits about ADG history and it struck me about how little I have learnt over my time. The most you'll learn at the sqaudrons is when the AFDS were formed, Tommy Irvine, a little about there involvment in Vietnam, mainly which squadrons they were attached to, that they got to be door gunners and that the last four troops out were ADG's. With the exception of Timor and the recent BIAP, SECDET and others, there is little out there. No one I asked at 2 New anything about the battle honnors except that they were from WW2?

So to sum up, is there any kind of book detailing any ADG history, especially the early years? I know us ADGs are pretty sloppy when it comes to paperwork but surley there must be some kind of history
