Royal Naval Photographic Courses


My thanks to DSOP Cosford for the details of all Naval personnel on courses at Cosford from  1972 to 2008. Career courses are listed on this page. For details of Naval  personnel on non-career courses at Cosford click Here.


Details of other courses have been gleaned from newsletters, photographs and personal memories of many ex-phots.


As course photographs were normally taken at the start of a course not all of those who's name appears necessarily qualified as photographers 


Courses on these pages are listed in course type order then by date if known. If dates are unknown it is listed  with zeros or blanks replacing the unknowns. For example  00-00-YYYY if only the year is known. Unknown and missing courses are highlighted in red. Please have a look and see if you can add anything


Those viewing these pages on the RNPA site can use the global search facility to find names etc.

 Those on the Waitrose site should use your browsers Search/Find facility to find names on each page.
