Still searching who he was…

One of my readers shared this photo a few months ago and we are still searching who he was.

Was he a pilot, a visitor, maybe a war correspondent? The Spitfire is a Spitfire Mk IX.


A feedback from a reader

Could he be Wally Conrad. Conrad was with the 403 in May 1943 and had a mid air collision with his wingman F/S Shouldice on August 17, 1943. Shouldice was killed but Conrad survived and escaped back to the U.K. by October 10, 1943. Conrad may have paid a visit to his old squadron and had this picture taken before being shipped back to Canada.
