    Hello,

    just recently found out that an uncle (fleet air arm) took part in the Royal Tournament in the 1950s, that's all the information I have.
    Where can I find some information about what year or years he took part in ?

    Are there any official photos of the competing and winning crews ?

    If he actually took part and was a WAFU a good place to start would be with the Fleet Air Arm Field Gun association.
    Do you have his name and rating if possible his official number?

    He might not have been a field gunner. The Royal Naval dancing team also took part in the Royal tournament

    Of course there is Ninja, ask any FAA Field Gunner and he will explain what the differences are, I believe that the explanation may be a physical thing:(:(
