The book above has his middle initial wrong. TMotBoB has him joining the RAFVR in May 1939, called up at the start of the war, and joining 610 Sqn in 6 Oct 1940. Neither that book nor FCL have his Spitfire serial, shot down during ASR escort.

Why am I telling you all this…?

Because I am going to meet Dennis Connolly this Thursday and talk about 91 Squadron and Jean Demozay.

We will also talk about the Dieppe Raid. Dennis Connolly was there on August 19, 1942!
