I just came across my dad's yearbook for 44-8 (squadron 1, squadron 5 (my dad's) If you would like to borrow it to add to your archives feel free to contact me.

Does it have a name index? I am searching for my dad's info from the AAC. He graduated from airplane mechanics school Nov 1943, Keesler, Biloxi MS.

@Georgeann, generally most class books do not have an index. However, the cadets are usually listed in alphabetical order because that's how they were assigned to each squadron. If your dad graduated from a school near Biloxi, you'll have to search class books from that school.

I don't know if this is correct place to go - I googled army airforce class 10-43. I have a list of "name and Home Adddress of Classs 10-43" which is typed. It was in with my father's WW11 items. He was a propellor mechanic stationed in Maine and in Bermuda. Would this list be of interest somewhre?
Thank you.

@Beverly, if you will send me a scanned copy of the list, I will try to match it with the correct air base. Many different bases used the same class numbers, like 43-10. My e-mail address is:
