A 60-YEAR POST DE­LAY

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT&ANALYSIS -

Be­ing nei­ther fa­mous nor in­fa­mous, it was a sur­prise to find a pic­ture of my­self in the JC.

On the front page of your re­print of the Fri­day, June 4, 1948 edi­tion is a pho­to­graph of a group of ser­vice­men with Rabbi Is­rael Brodie on a Moral Lead­er­ship Course. I’m the sec­ond on the left, front row. Next to me, third on the left, is Sergeant Peter Con­way. Peter was the only other Jewish lad on our in­take at RAF Wilm­slow in 1947.

We be­came good friends and I spent many happy week­ends at his home in Manch­ester while we were sta­tioned at Wilm­slow. Alas we moved on and lost touch.

I do not have any other way of find­ing out his where­abouts now. If he is still around, he must be about 80, it would be great to get in touch. Brian Rus­sell (For­merly Rus­soff) Ranelagh Gar­dens, Il­ford, Es­sex IG1
