HELP - 28th December 14:30hrs - SITUATION RESOLVED
I just received a 'phone call from Dave Cutbush. He has been contacted by Fl. Lt. Letchford's daughter. Fl Lt Letchford was killed in a Shackleton crash back in 1967. She would like a copy of the 4 Sqdn graduation photo'. Has any one got an original in 'mint' or very good condition that could be copied? If anyone can help please contact Dave or myself


Pictured here on 18th December 2008. Outside Fanueil Hall in Boston with his USA naturalization certificate.

Congratulations Geordie

Memorabilia pages - If you have any odds & sods of a similar nature, that will scan, I would be grateful for them to add to the page. Steve

Photographs- If any ex 40th Boy Entrants have any photos that they would like to share with others to revive a few old memories they would be greatly appreciated.
