    Here's the account from Bob Kirkpatrick, my American friend with whom I was able to re-establish contact as a result of using this forum. As you will see, Bob ended up with 21 squadron, R.A.F. I'll post some pics of a painting and profiles I did of his aircraft under Aviation Pictures.

    Don't know what happened, the attachment uploaded, but it aint there! I'll try again!
    Sorry, it's an 'Invalid File' type. I'll figure out how to convert it and post it later!
