Paying Homage to Flying Officer A. L. (Al) Berry

I have not talked a lot about Al Berry. Last time was August 16, 2010.

Time flies…

Flying Officer A. L. Berry was from New Zeland and he was a navigator with 23 Squadron.

Paul Beaudet’s daughter sent some pictures of Al Berry. Paul Beaudet was George Stewart’s navigator.

Here is the post I wrote on August 16, 2010, to refresh your memory.

Do you have more information on F/O A.L. (Al) Berry?

Flying Officer  A.L. Berry was with the RNZAF.

He was a navigator in No. 23 Squadron of the RAF.

This is what George Stewart told me. He identified him also on the pictures sent to me by Paul Beaudet’s daughter.

Sometimes it only takes one clue to open many doors… So this is the first door.

F/O A.L. (Al) Berry

Are you related to him?

This is another picture in Diane’s collection where we see F/O A.L. (Al) Berry.

Looks very much like F/O A.L. (Al) Berry. Look at his insigna. He is a navigator.

Want another picture?

This is what George said about F/O A.L. (Al) Berry when he saw this next picture I sent him…

This photo shows me with F/O A.L. (Al) Berry, a squadron navigator, whose pilot was P/O R. A. (Ron) Neil, both members of the RNZAF.

Could this be his pilot, P/O R. A. (Ron) Neil?

F/O A.L. (Al) Berry and P/O R. A. (Ron) Neil?

Try this montage…

Déjà vu…?

Are you related somehow to these airmen?

If so, write me a comment.

Someone wrote but he is not directly related to Al Berry.

Next time I will introduce you to someone who is doing exactly what I have been doing since 2010.

Paying homage to airmen even though we are not directly related to them.
