A Second World War autograph signed black and white photograph of prize giving at an R.A.F. sports event in the Bahamas, the duke standing far right.

The Duke of Windsor was closely involved bringing the R.A.F.’s 11 Operational Training Unit to Nassau, Bahamas. Besides its function as a training unit, the OTU also served as a Conversion Unit for qualified aircrew moving from B25 Mitchells to B24 Liberators. On the Operational side it carried out anti-submarine patrols over the Western Atlantic. The location also enabled Canadian Air Force members to crew up with their R.A.F. counterparts, before ferrying badly needed aircraft across the Atlantic ready for active service in the European and Far Eastern theatres.
