On July 15, 2013 I visited the old Pocklington Airfield where my father served in the RAF during WWII. It is now the home of a gliding club. I then moved on to the Yorkshire Air Museum to see the restored last Halifax, the type of aircraft  he worked on.

Chris Harper has put together an excellent website about 102 Squadron and people who served in it, including a page about Bill based on the photos below.

On December 30, 2016 I took Mum to the airfield which she had last visited at the end of WWII..... ....amd on September 27, 2017 returned with Mum and Dad's sister Daphne
On May 6/7, 2017 I attended the 102 (Ceylon) Squadron Association Reunion dinner and Service (at St Catherine's Barmby Moor) followed by wreath laying at the Squadron Memorial, There was a repaired Halifax engine, which was fired up.
