I’ve been given another set of incredible photos from my Grandad’s time in Asia during the war. This includes images of him working as a meteorologist, which was one of the jobs he did out there. Another of travelling over to India on the ferry, which took a number of weeks and was very cold in December! And one of him with the 1st Penang Company ‘The Boys Brigade’ and an amazing letter, thanking him for his valuable service.
I love these pictures. Each new find gives me more of an idea about what his experiences in the war may have been like.
N.B. The one of him sitting on a Nazi plane was taken near Celle in Germany where he was stationed before he was demobbed in August 1947 but I thought it too interesting not to include!
More to come…
