Archive for December, 2010

A little while back Errol Martyn kindly checked his database of airmen who died or were killed in RNZAF service (or New Zealanders in other Air Forces). Searching for the keyword of Cambridge he picked up a number of new airmen that I did not previously have on my website. I was very grateful for these names and I have since been piecing together pages on their careers and lives. Today i have managed to get a few onto the site. There are more to come, including a new WWI pilot and some post-war airmen too. But in the meantime for this update the new airmen are:

James Breadon

Winston Cannell

Kenneth Hansen

And

More will be added as time allows.

Currently there are 196 men on the site who lived in Cambridge at some point before joining the Air Force in WWII.
