I am not an aviation guy, although my father was a flying instructor
in Canada during the war. (First five photos.)
In the group photo he is bottom row ...third from the right.
He got his pilots license in 1938 -see the photos below.
Both Tobin and my father got their pilots license in 1938.
I suspect my father taught many allied fellows how to fly.....according to his Pilots Log Book.
Some of the other photos show Liberator KN751 on its
way back to England as well as a photo of the
cockpit of this aircraft which you have probably seen
first hand. (Photos six and seven.)
Three other photos show some other pieces of Tobin’s stuff. (Photos 8-10.)
Including a Canadian one dollar bill which looks like it was signed by some of his flying mates.
Strangely enough two of the pistol rigs in my collection are associated to pilots in one way or another….
one American…one Canadian.
