F/O K.P. Marshall – Update

Update

Comment on a post dated January 2019

I have been trying to match names to the men not yet listed in the wonderful colourized photo of 403 pilots at Catterick in August 1942. I believe P/O H.J. Murphy is 4th from the left second row. P/O M. Johnston may be 5th from the left first row. I found photos of these two pilots on the site flyingforyourlife.com. Hope this helps some in completing your research in finding those remaining names.

With regards to your July 12, 2018 posting of the 403 squadron in front of a Spitfire (the colourized version of the photo with the men’s names). The man in the second row and second from the right is F/O K.P. Marshall.

  1. Have you seen this before? Could this have been owned by Mr. Aitken’s? I bought it in Edmonton Alberta in a Value Village for about $15.

  2. Sorry to keep bothering you Pierre. I think I found Sgt. C.F. Sorensen. I believe he is 2nd from left in the third row next to Sgt. Cabas.

  3. Of the remaining five pilots not listed, I have not been able to find pictures to the following pilots I know who served with 403 squadron at that time. Their names are Sgts. H.S. Anderson, M.F. Fletcher, A.L. Hayes, D.L. Rawson, A. Thomas, P/Os C.R. Olmsted, J. Mozolowski, and F/O J. Wiejski. Hopefully, someone can match a face with the above mentioned names in the group picture of 403 at Catterick in August 1942.
