    Default A famous Free French pilot or not?

    Good afternoon everybody.

    My name is Mehdi Schneyders and I am designer - illustrator. On the last tuesday, I have received about forty pictures ( reproductions ) of airmen enlisted in the R.A.F. during the Second World War.

    There are two pictures where I am quite sure about the pilot's identity. But I need another advice. Is it the famous Free French ace Pierre Clostermann or not?

    Thank you to send me your answer on my E - mail : honest_abe_jr@hotmail.com

    The similarity to Closterman is remarkable. Note the hairstyle and eyebrows, but most noticably the nose and the crease at the top of the bridge. I would give it a cautious thumbs up!

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks for your message " Sergeant Hans Schultz "! It's very kind of you. If you want to see it, I've got another picture of a Typhoon top scorer : Group Captain John Robert " Johnny " Baldwin DSO DFC.

    Good night and thanks again.
