    Default WoW! RAFTC items.

    Evening gents,
    I have struck lucky and come across some more items from Flt Lt Sim of the RAFTC. A great period image of him wearing tropics and a fantastic hand drawn cartoon over several pages covering a trans Atlantic flight in 1942. They will go with the other items I have of his (cap/docs folder/photograph album etc). I am so pleased to have found these pieces and put them back together. Leon.

    It's great to see all this man's gear kept together as a whole for future generations, well done Leon on having the forethought to collect it and keep it safe!

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    You might find this of interest. It's a US immigration entry form from 1943. Cheers, Tom

    Thank you very much Tom, my "google" searches only confirmed at some point he lived in Berwick upon Tweed, so you have really "moved it on" for me. I really appreciate you taking the time and effort looking this information up for me, Cheers, Leon.
