  • His sister Alba never forgot him and had this same photo on her wall from 1941 until her death in October 2010. He was her youngest brother. He gave his life and that of his flying crew somewhere over the English channel. One of many promising people who gave their lives to protect their own families, their way of life, their country. Thankyou with all our deepest love and gratitude
