Pierre, sorry it’s taken me a few weeks to send you this picture of S/L Hart Finley’s two daughters, Heather left ,and Sandra right and myself at the Spitfire display. Both of Harts daughters attended the museum to see the model of their famous Dad’s Spitfire. Both daughters brought their husbands and we all had a great visit. Heather brought one of her Dad’s log boooks from his days with 403 Squadron and allowed me to make a copy for the museum. The log book makes for some very interesting reading and we are very proud to be able to add the log book to our growing collection of Spitfire and bomber pilots log book collection.
