Wilf and Comrades - The first are pictures of Wilf and the men with whom he trained and served. Hold your mouse over the photos to see descriptions.

Places - The second group are of places related to the crew.

  • The first set of photos were taken by Roger Smith. Roger was kind enough to take some photos of the Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede Cemetery. The Memorial commemorates by name over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves. My uncle’s name is on one of the plaques at Runnymede and can be seen in one of the pictures Roger took. You can read the article that Roger wrote about the Memorial here. It was through this article that I met Roger. Roger has asked me to restate his offer to pay tribute to the war dead at Runnymede, please feel free to take him up on this kind offer.
  • The remaining photos, taken by Shaun Robinson, show the Helmswell base as it is today, where Squardron 170 was based at the end of the war.

Family - The last group are pictures of Wilf with various family members and friends. I’m also looking for pictures of the families of other crew members. Hold your mouse over the photos to see descriptions.
