I have recently found some photos of my great grandfather Albert Fellows, who I believe was originally in the Airforce but joined a military band called The Gremlins, who were in Nauru.

I am struggling to find any information on the, although I have a lot of photos (with no names).

Just wondering if anyone could help me (point me in the direction) of some information.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Rory,

I guess this is Albert http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/NEA0645/  - what a great photo!  More photos by doing a 'simple search' for "No. 3 Mobile Entertainment Unit"  http://www.awm.gov.au/search/collections/?q=%22No.+3+Mobile+Enterta...

Also http://www.pahst.com/PGTheatreTheGremlinsRAAFWW2.htm

There are also some mentions on TROVE, just search for "No. 3 Mobile Entertainment Unit" and "The Gremlins" band. 


His service record has not been digitised but you can request that it be done.  Search the collection for 69195 Fellows http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/search/index.aspx

Click on the 'control symbol' link and on the next page you will see a 'request copy' link.



Roy, My father was also in a band called The Gremlins in the Army Air Corp during WWII. However, he was in England at the time.  I am attaching a photo in hopes of finding someone that may have performed with him.  His name was Joseph L. Schooler and he played the guitar in the band. This picture was taken sometime between October 1943 and June 1944.  He went into France during DDay and served in France, and Belgium, performing with small bands as entertainment for the troops and local citizens.  I am attaching a photo of The Gremlins.
