Looking for info on my grandad - Gordon Frederick Watling (LAC)


I am assisting my dad in looking for information on my grandad (his father) who served in the Suez for 2yrs from approx 1950 to 1952.

His name was Gordon Frederick Watling and was an LAC nursing attendant/medic in the RAF and served in serveral camps on the canal zone including:

Ell Ballah
El Firdan
Tel El Kebir

RAF Marham
Horsham St.Faith

Sadly my grandfather died in 1978, 5 yrs before I was born. It would be great if anyone that served with him (and ideally had any photosgraphs) would be happy to share any memories/photographs of him they may have.
