He should know…

I asked George Stewart about the meaning of Erks…

He should know.

He was a Mosquito pilot with 23 Squadron.

This is what George wrote me last night.

Erks’, is a kindly word meaning your ground crew guys!
I’ve not heard that term used since those days!


Want to know more about George?

George Stewart knows a lot about piloting Mosquitoes.

He also trained the Nationalist Chinese to fly them in 1948.

One thing George probably is not aware of is that he is responsible for this blog about No. 403 Squadron.

It’s because I went to see him in Hamilton this summer that I stayed at Greg’s father’s B  & B and that I met Greg.
