Mark has been writing about his father who was affectionately called an erk.
Here’s Mark’s latest contribution.
It appears the ERK in the background is applying squadron lettering to an unmarked Spit with a stencil.
This is what I wrote on December 27th, 2011 on this blog about RCAF 403 Squadron.
Walter Neil Dove did 74 missions. He came back alive.
He started flying on December 8, 1944.
He saw many friends died.
He wrote everything in his logbook and he took a lot of pictures.
His grandson teamed up with me in September.
He scanned his grandfather’s logbook and photo album.
I wrote 74 articles.
All this to share with people who could have known some pilots or ground crew who were with No. 403 Squadron.
Read the comment carefully…
Once again, I get the impression that the “powers that be” hope that we’ll all fade away and the problem will disappear. I’m certainly impressed that you’ve made the effort to write about some of these airmen.
