Hello!

Postby Ajw » Wed Sep 01, 2010 11:47 pm

Hi all!

Just popping in to say hello!

I have joined this forum in memory of my Grandfather Jack 'Johnnie' Walker who started his RAF career flying Halifax's on 10 Squadron in the war and went right through to retire on VC10's and later ops, again on 10 Squadron!

Hopefully you will get to see more of me in due course and I look forward to getting to know some of you!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!

Old photos you say...........

This is my Grandfather and his WWII crew:
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q273 ... 1943-1.jpg

Here he is with my Grandma a few years later:
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q273 ... /MandD.jpg

And here he is a good few years later enjoying a glass of port on his last night at home before going to the nursing home where he later died (6 years to the day) near Farmoor.

Oh, and a pic of a Halifax just for the sake of it!
