Chris Gunn-Malcolm says...http://www.spiritofcoltishall.com/history Your statement in Operation Granby in this site is incorrect.
WE DID LOSE A PILOT AND AN AIRCRAFT.... After deployment to SOAF Thumrait at the beginning of Operation Granby, during a training/familisition sortie 6 Sqn lost apilot and his aircraft.... I was SNCO i/c Sqn Operations and on the guard of honour for his repatriation to UK
Bas Turvey says...Nice web site, I served at Coltishall from 1975 - 1984 on, 22 sqn, 202 sqn, 41 sqn and ASF until I managed to escape to Finningley. Dave Welsh was my Flt Sqt on 202 until we returned from the Falklands in 1982.
Peter Brereton says...As A National Serviceman I served with 141 Squadron, later 41 Squadron at Coltishall. I was Eng Mech Turrbines and during my time there we flew Meteors, Vampires, Venoms and Javelins. I'd like to hear from anyone that remembers me.
Anita Cecilie Strindberg says...I have a photo of your father, taken in Toronto, Canada, and would be pleased to share it with you if you like. My mother knew him and several other Norwegian flyers - above all Fredrik Fearnley. I'd love to more about your father. My personal email is email@example.com. Thank you.
My father was flying the Spitfire in R.A.F during the war. He was in the Norwegian squadron I think 331.
He died in 1984, but he left me a silver pint, which has engraved the following
2/lt. D.H. Strevens
It would be nice if you could tell me something about Mr. Strevens, as my family do not have any clue and do not know why my father had it. Would be nice to give the jug back.
His name was Ingar Helge Knudsen.
