Ap­peal for help to trace RAF skip­per

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, When I was a foolish 11-year- old, I gave away my fa­ther’s RAF log book and medals. Now 50- odd years later, I am try­ing to piece to­gether a dossier of his six years’ of serv­ing in the RAF in the Sec­ond World War, ear­lier in Pathfinder Force and then for the re­main­der of the war, as flight sergeant, fly­ing Lan­cast­ers, in Bomber Com­mand 15 Squadron.

His skip­per in Lan­cast­ers came from Oban and ran a garage or mo­tor deal­er­ship. In the early six­ties, my fa­ther vis­ited him while tour­ing Scot­land.

I am hop­ing that one of your read­ers may be able to give me his skip­per’s name so that the his­to­rian at 15 Squadron As­so­ci­a­tion can use the name to un­earth my fa­ther’s war records as I do not have his ser­vice num­ber.

My email is gdroberts1@aol.com Gor­don Roberts, via email.
