This is the start of a series of articles on unidentified airmen that belonged to No. 23 Squadron.
Diane gave me permission to post the pictures she had of her father on this blog.
I will first put this one.
This is her father.
Paul Beaudet DFC
Paul as you know was George Stewart’s navigator.
This is George.
George Stewart DFC
We are lucky to know their names.
Peter Smith kind of introduced me to Georges Stewart. Peter sent me part of his manuscript. In it he has some pictures of Paul Beaudet that George Stewart shared with him.
This is one of them.
Hey George… We’re a team!
Diane has this picture also and she has a lot more to share with you.
This is the first one.
I think I recognize George on the left. I don’t think Paul Beaudet is on the right.
I know No. 23 Squadron was posted on Malta and Sardinia. I don’t know if this picture was taken there.
What I know is that the island of Malta suffered a lot before the RAF could send planes to defend against the numerous attacks from the Luftwaffe.
See you next Monday for more pictures that seem related to Malta.
