Spring Cleaning '10

This blog started on May 28th, 2008. After reviewing my past postings -- mainly the first bunch -- I decided to clean house. Too much early rubbish... to the bin.

A few of the early postings will be reinserted in the near future with some minor editing.

As I mentioned in the very first posting I have a regular website:

Hopefully, things will pick up soon in the production end.

Royal Air Force 626 Squadron - May 1945

Dave Stapleton of http://626squadron.org/ supplied me with the above picture to help identify my father. It was taken on May 30th, 1945, and shows RAF 626 Squadron airmen wearing their "Best Blues".

Just a few weeks before, my dad and his crew flew twice to Rotterdam as part of "Operation Manna", a series of sorties which involved air-dropping sacks of food for the starving Dutch population.

Those were different times.

Nothing's changed, eh? How we never learn.
