I think he could well be Flt.Lt. W.C. 'Wally' Ehrens of 197 Sqn who flew Typhoons. He may even have made it to Sqn.Ldr. before the end of the war, but It's up to you to dig deeper my friend!
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
