reply: kurtis Added a lot! 2017-09-05 07:14:09

Kevin, you've added an incredible number of pilots, starting with your father. Thanks for documenting all of them as you have.

reply: Penelope Davidson Daddy! 2018-12-21 00:22:56

I have added a photo to your post, Alan Davidson was my father

reply: Penelope Davidson log book 2018-12-21 00:23:47

Re my father, I have his flying log book

reply: Mike Widdowson Added Photos 2019-04-20 18:11:01

Hello Kevin,

This is an impressive list of pilots - a huge effort of research. I am most grateful for you adding my father (I've just added some photos), and discovering the aircraft numbers he flew. This latter information is not in the flying logs (just the aircraft designation letter - 'E', 'G' etc.). I can now complete that part. I have several photos of your father, and Hodge and Dad in Italy which I can forward if you wish.

Best wishes,

Mike Widdowson


by: Adrian Dwyer Thank you 2021-05-16 11:40:32

Dear Kevin,
Thank you for adding Blag (Blagdon Cecil Britton, 145 Squadron DAF)! I have only just found this site and now my spare time is directed towards locating images to add to the Spitfire page and 'missing' pilots. Your example is inspiring!
All the very best.
Yours,
Adrian

by: Paul Beadle Pilot & Spitfire reunited 44 years later 2021-06-24 14:41:52

Kevin, thankyou for your hard work, I stumbled across details for my father, James Laurie Beadle. I posted some photos which include a reunion of him with his Spitfire (JXU) from 1989! He had flown the plane whilst with No.1 Squadron & it had eventually ended up as a sentinel outside an RAF base in Northants. Base commander enquired in the Spitfire Magazine if anyone knew of its history? My father thought that JXU looked familiar, looked it up, it had been his plane. I posted a pic of him with it in 1945 at Tangmere (JXU tail is extreme left, my father hands on hips in front row looking at squadron dog) and one of him at the reunion. The Base Commander invited him to the base to reunite him & his "kite", & gave him a good lunch where he spent a couple of hours answering questions on WW2 for current pilots. Needless to say he was overwhelmed!
