28th November 2010

I am Maurice Duffill, now resident in Wee Jasper, New South Wales, Australia. I was F.O. Duffill of 152 Squadron, Wattisham and Stradishall, 1954 to 1956.

I notice the squadron photograph where aircrew are sitting on the wings of an NF 14; I have attached an outline drawing I made years ago, identifying all on the photo.

My Nav/Rad was F.O. Ken Ogden and my best mate was F.O. Alan Elsegood; I would be most interested to make contact if that is possible. I have a few tales to tell of incidents during my tour of duty but one saga I have made into a short story which I have attached.

 It is great to have contact with one's past, I just wish I had done it sooner.
