Who am I writing for?

Who am I writing for?

Cathy Swanson whose father was a fighter pilot who I thought only flew with RCAF 403 Squadron.

Gil Gillis when he was with RCAF 403 Squadron

Larry Hayward whose father was a navigator when 238 Squadron reformed as a transport squadron.

Wendy Bradshaw whose father was also a navigator.

Robert Davis


Who am I writing for?

Any relatives of these pilots who might one day read this blog about 238 Squadron, and want to know more.

20 February 1943 Gamil

This is from whom I am writing for.

This blog  started last year as a tribute to Gil Gillis, Cathy’s father. He was the only one identified on this picture.

No date, just a few clues, mostly the Hawker Hurricane Mk IIc fitted with a Vokes filter for North African operations during WW II.

It has grown since last year, and it will keep on growing.
