Pat Murphy’s Message and Homage to Spitfire pilots

Note

This was a draft post written almost 5 years ago. I still have 30 more draft posts left. This is post 741 honouring those who served with RCAF 403 Squadron.


Pierre, while I was doing some searching tonight for more information on Hart Finley, I came across this picture I took in 2007 at the Y2-K Spitfire restoration project Open House. We had 12 Spitfire pilots attend that year and this was one truck full.

It was a great day to have so many Spitfire pilots in one place.

Just another group picture?

Update

Since George Boudreau is on this group picture and he was shot down on March 15, 1945, the group picture is taken before.


Think again.

I love this group picture taken in March 1945 at Petit Brogel in Belgium.

Loved it so much I added labels.

I wanted to use it as a reference tool.

That was before I met virtually Josette Nadon on the Internet. Her father was a Spitfire pilot who was only remembered by a picture and a one liner.

Girlfriends and beer…

Georges Nadon has now his own blog to be remembered…
