Are You a Relative of These Airmen?

Someone is writing a book about his father who was a pilot with No. 23 Squadron, and I am lending him a helping hand sort of by creating this new blog.

He needs information on these airmen.

Would you be one of their relatives?

  1. My father was a navigator with 23 SQN stationed in Sardinia, Sergeant Albert Ginger Collar.
    I have a photo taken of the Squadron aircrew the day they arrived in Sardinia. That is what I was told.
    My father is not in the photo because he was taken short and had to run behind the hut.

    He survived the war dying in 1976.

  2. I am a nephew of Flt Lt Frank Thomas (and cousin of Glyn from whom you have already have a message).

    Have researched and documented Frank’s war/op sorties and have full copy of orig 23 Sqn Ops Record Book (F540) for period 1 Aug 1944 – 25 Sep 1945.

    If any detail needed.

  3. I am a niece of Flight Sergeant Douglas Darbon. If you need any further information I will gladly pass it onto my Aunt.

    Thanks

  4. I am the sister of 1801128 Flt Sgt Darbon of 23 squadron.
    I would be happy to help if I can with your research.

    1. I tried to write to you but your e-mail does not work.
      Maybe you typed it wrong when you send me your comment.

      I know how to reach Peter Smith whose father was the pilot of the Mosquito with your husband.
