Me and my Spitfire

That’s the caption Wally Dove wrote.

Wally survived the war. He gave his grandson Greg his logbook and his photo album.

As I said many times, Greg scans and I write.

Many readers have also shared what they had about RCAF No. 403 Squadron. Peter Lecoq is one of them.

If you have something to share, feel free to do so by writing a comment. I will contact you.

  1. Hi,

    Good site.

    Collecting info on 403 squadron during WWII is a great idea whose time has come.

    The site seems a little slow, the software is a little clunky and sometimes a little difficult to follow.

    You are gathering some valuable historical information here, and I’d hate to see it lost because of the fact that you might be perhaps hosting it through a free site.

    My father was an Erk – Airframe Mechanic – with Bomber Command – during WWII. He transferred to 403 while stationed in England, and remained with 127 Wing from the Normandy invasion until the end of the war.

    I have many of his old photos, some written journals and some great written stories I could share. I also have some crests, medals and his old Jerkin – complete with air force paint art work, as well as many of the letters he wrote while overseas.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks for the comments.
      WordPress is a nice platform to work with.
      I keep archives of everything and a double back-up.

      You can share what you have and I will post it here giving full credits as you can see on my blog.

      • Pierre,
        So what’s your connection or interest in 403 all about?
        The more I work with WordPress the better it seems.
        If you want to start an Erks category – I’d share my stuff.
        I think it’s important that what I have gets shared with an appreciative audience.
        Most RCAF stuff is about pilots – very little about the ground crews, the work they did, the things they witnessed and the dangers they faced.

        Cheers,

        Mark

      • No problem with me.
        My exact feeling.

        Also please contact Dean Black. He’s excited about all this.

        Erks category on the way…
